Re: Non-EU B permit holder bought a house - my options when leaving CH

The Office of Justice has published an aide-memoire in various languages that should help you understand the law:

http://snurl.com/lex-f
http://snurl.com/lex-d

See page 6 of the English version, which may apply to you: "If the buyer changes his place of domicile, he need not sell the dwelling and can dispose of it as he sees fit. He may continue to use it as a secondary or holiday residence or rent it to third parties. He may also purchase another home in his new place of domicile without having to sell the first one...."

Not every notary/lawyer is skilled in this subject. The only authoritative information will come from your canton's Land Registry (see Appendix, p. 15). Asking them has the other distinct advantage of being free and gratis.
