If you wish to rent accommodation you can either contact a private landlord or one of the non-profit housing associations. When you have found a suitable accommodation, you and your landlord must sign a written lease agreement. This is important as you have to make sure that you will not have any unforeseen and unrighteous costs. There is a lot of different websites where you can find accommodation, one possibility is www.danmarkbolig.dk/en.
You can also contact your local municipality or your employer for help finding accommodation. To find help on the written lease agreement, contact your local tenant association, or go to www.dklf.dk/lejerforeninger.
