Ordering an extract from the debt collection register

An extract from the debt collection register provides information on whether you have paid your bills on time or if you have ever been pursued by debt collectors. Your future landlord may require you to provide an extract from the debt collection register when you apply for an apartment.

Requesting information from the debt collection register online

You can order an extract online at the Federal Office of Justice’s debt collection portal.
An extract normally costs CHF 17 plus postage.

Ordering from the relevant debt collection office

You can also order the extract directly from the relevant debt collection office. To obtain an extract from your own register entry, you will have to present a permanent residence permit, driving licence, identity card, passport or a foreign national identity card.
