Renovating an apartment in Switzerland

Hi,

I am thinking of buying an apartment in a ski resort that needs a lot of renovation, including removing a non-supporting wall and adding another one to improve the layout. The estate agent says I'm free to do whatever I like within the apartment without building permits/regulations, unlike in the UK. Is this correct? I would appreciate some advice.

Thanks in advance.

Your estate agent probably is right about the inside of the building. However if you want to change the facade and it is of historic value, or part of a locality with many other historic buildings, the cantonal monument conservation office could become interested.

Thanks for the reply. No, I don't want to change the outside of the flat, just move some walls inside.
