Buying a property is a huge investment for most people. If you plan to live in Denmark for more than 5 years, you can consider whether you want to buy or rent a place to live.

Before you decide to buy property, it is advisable to contact a housing lawyer or a housing advisor to find out more about the housing market. You should also consult your bank about mortgage loans.

Requirements for non-Danish citizens

Certain requirements apply to non-Danish citizens when it comes to buying property: You might have to obtain permission from The Department of Civil Affairs (Civilstyrelsen) under the Danish Ministry of Justice to buy property in Denmark.
