Can foreigners rent out apartments?

Hello,

[sorry if this is in the wrong forum, not sure where to start this thread]

Prices of houses in the UK are ridiculous - I'm thinking of buying an appartement in one of the french speaking tourist areas of Switzerland and living in it for 6 months of the year. I work from home on a PC so I can live anywhere really.

I don't have residency - only a UK passport; although I'd like to work towards getting residency at some stage.

Because I will only be allowed to live in Switzerland for 6 months of the year, I'd like to rent out the appartement for a few months when I am away.

I was wondering whether anyone here can help me with my question: although foreigners are allowed to buy in some tourist areas, are they allowed to rent out appartements and receive rental income?
