Re: House buying

We also bought a place here in Fribourg, my wife is Swiss so there was far less hasle.
However, the largest fees to pay on buying a house are the transfer of ownership and land registery (droits de mutation et droits sur les gages)

This is between 3 and 4 % of the purchase price and is payed to the canton (direction des finances)
We got our bill 6 weeks after moving .
Good luck with the move.

Nick.
