Secondary Homes

December 2012

On 11 March 2012 the initiative "Stop the Endless Construction of Secondary Homes" ("Secondary Home Initiative") was accepted by Swiss voters. The new constitutional provision shall essentially prevent the construction of new holiday homes in tourist regions which already have a twenty percent or greater share of holiday homes. The Federal Council has adopted an implementing ordinance which will enter into force on 1 January 2013.
