Do I have to rent out my property in Switzerland?
It depends! Generally, if you own a second home in Switzerland, you are under no obligation to rent it out when you are not there. You are free to use the property as a private second home for holidays and for friends and family to stay in if they visit the country.
Alternatively, there is an increasing number of ‘Tourism Residences’ where you are able to purchase a fully managed apartment which will come with a rental obligation.
