Can I buy property with non-EU B permit?

Hi, can anyone advise if I am allowed to buy any property in Zurich kanton with non-EU B permit? Any references would be appreciated. Thanks!

Being a non-EU B permit, it's my understanding you can, but only 1 place and you must live in it. When you leave CH you must sell it.

That`s good, but how can I confirm this information? I`ve just called ZKB (Zurich Bank) and they told I can not

This is not true. My ex-boss is an Australian, and he bought an
apartment on a B-Permit.

It might have helped that he worked for one of the major banks.

Can anyone give a link to some source of information? It would be really nice to have a more or less exact answer

Re: Can I buy property in Zurich with non-EU B permit?

Usually a C residency is needed to buy property.

Bulk exemptions are granted in certain tourist resorts. The builder must apply for a quota of apartments, which can be sold to anybody.

And if you are a F1-Driver, or VIP, or otherwise very wealthy, then you can negotiate your taxes and permits.

Re: Can I buy property in Zurich with non-EU B permit?

I see this as a lender issue rather than a restriction. Property rights have been relaxed in the last few years and I think JPH sums it up quite nicely.

I am also sure that, if you searched the forum, you'd see it is discussed already.

Ask at the town hall for a specific and precise answer.

Can you please change at least the font color you use, it's rather irritating.
