Betreibung - oh dear

After thirteen years here I received my first Betreibungs letter today. It was for an invoice for the house insurance CHF 333 - oh well just pay but I don't remember seeing any reminders. Is there any recourse, can I lodge a complaint? I vaguely remember the invoice, but I don't remember seeing any reminders.

Re: Betreibung - oh dear

Pay it immediately, once money is received by creditor, obtain a letter of satisfaction from them, take it to the betreibungs office they will delete it from your record if done as far as i recall within 20 days

I might be wrong, but I thought there is no such thing as automatic removal from the register (well besides the 5yr rule)

There is no law or rule that demands reminders to be send.

Which is an optional service and subject to pure goodwill from the creditor as it defies the purpose of the register.

Re: Betreibung - oh dear

First check that it is justified and not an error on the company's side.
