Buying a home

If you wish to buy property in Copenhagen, there are several things you need to be aware of.

Buying a house 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 The Department of Civil Affairs (Civilstyrelsen) under the Danish Ministry of Justice to buy property in Denmark.
