Switzerland - Pestalozzi Rechtsanwalte AG

While it remains unclear when and on what terms Brexit will happen, the United Kingdom and Switzerland recently signed an agreement on citizens' rights which covers the purchase and retention of real estate by UK citizens in Switzerland and vice versa.

Otherwise, they will be considered persons abroad and will be subject to the Lex Koller restrictions.
