Obtaining permission for UK citizen to buy property

Is there a way of checking on the web how long it might take to get permission to purchase an apartment as a UK citizen in a particular area of Switzerland? I believe the permits are allocated every quarter but how do you reliably check the numbers in the queue ahead of you?

Note here there are two levels of queue if not three. There is the state, the kanton and the commune. The state allows a certain amount of permits which the cantons can consume. The kantons then determine the amount that will be available in their area and the commune whether it will be at all possible or not. Note you can expect to wait around 2 years and at the moment there is a total block ie no movement at all...
