Renting services in Denmark can be rendered by specialized agencies as well as private persons. When it comes to the latter, those looking for the acommodation to hire should be particularly vigilant. Many fraudsters act according to similar schemes, taking advantage of the lack of knowledge and experience of those looking for an apartment to hire, especially newcomers to Denmark.


Renting a room or an apartment is possible without a written form of agreement, by means of a verbal agreement, or actual state. Such agreement is legally binding and is subject to tenancy laws – huslejelov. For our own safety and for evidence reasons, it is better, however, to draw up a written form of the contract. When signing an agreement we learn about our rights and particular duties. Such agreement entitles a tenant to apply for rental grants or financial support from the kommune.


Tenancy rights in Denmark are subject to a wide protection. It is well served by means of the provisions of law, specialized departments of the kommune, private tenancy organizations, the system of free legal aid – retshjælp, rental grants and other financial support.


Danish Tenancy Law is focused on the maximum protection of tenants and stands in the way of the owners of private properties forbidding them to fix freely the level of the rent. The amount of money paid to the owner for renting the property specified in the agreement as well as other charges may be changed under certain conditions provided by the law. Check how to lower the costs as soon as you sign the agreement.
