Betreibung removal... any way of forcing it?

To cut a long story short, a fair few years (around 4-5) ago I got ****ed over by Interdiscount.ch who through their in-store incompetence created a situation where I was issued with a Betreibung, which I paid off immediately with a hefty fine from Interim Justicia (which in hindsight was silly as I now read they have no right to do so).

Anyway, I still have the Betreibung entry on my record, and while it is marked as "paid", I want it removed completely. I originally contacted Co-Op and they said "it's not down to us to remove it" and then contacted Interim Justicia who then said: "It's not our policy to remove it".

Clearly I am peeved at this, and now want it gone from sight. I will contact them again this week, but if they both again refuse is there any way I can get it removed without their approval, or have them ordered to remove it?

Re: Betreibung removal... any way of forcing it?

It has to be removed 5 years afterwards anyway?

Seems you can ask for it yourself after 5 years

Ahh interesting I didn't read that before... in that case I should check if it's possible yet. Thanks Roegner.

I don't "need" it removed urgently as I'm not planning on applying for apartments any time soon (touch wood), but I do want it gone in case my plans change and I know how finicky Swiss landlords can be, even though I've had good luck in the past.

Fully agree. Always better to have an empty slate!

Hello,

Contact your gemeinde, they will charge you Circa CHF50.00 to remove it.

Good luck.

Re: Betreibung removal... any way of forcing it?

Agree with other posters.

A Betreibung has to go through the Betreibungsamt.

I very much doubt that Interim Justitia have escalated this to the Betreibungsamt, but that it's been entered on your credit record? Obtain a Betreibungsregister if you haven't already.

Re: Betreibung removal... any way of forcing it?

One of my frequent wet dreams is to find out that a holiday maker here on fantasy island works at Intrum Jusitia... They would never find the body.

I do hope you do one day. The way it operates is completely illegal - relies on people not knowing their rights or the law.
