Do I need the Residence Permit B to rent an apartment?

Hi all,

I tried to google and used the search function and while I have gotten lots of information that way, I am still confused about something...

So, I read in several posts that foreigners need a residence permit when applying to rent an apartment. But then I also read that you need an apartment contract to apply for the residence permit? How is that possible? When I googled the Residence Permit B, I could not find an official list of documents I would need to bring but the firm I will be working for in Zurich told me I need housing in order to be able to get the Permit.

Is that true? How do people do this when they need the permit to get an apartment but the apartment is also necessary to get the permit?

I am German citizen, so not sure if that changes anything.

Any help is much appreciated.
