The New Danish Lease Act Explained

Group 7 Created with Sketch.

Background

In 2014, a majority of The Danish Parliament entered a settlement, as it was agreed that the Danish Lease Act (in Danish: “Lejeloven”) and the Housing Regulation Act (in Danish: “Boligreguleringsloven”) should be fused into one simple “Danish Lease Act”.

The main purpose of the bill is to create a simple structure for the tenancy law in Denmark. Hereby stating that it is not the purpose to change the substance of the law. The simplification is primarily found in the fact that the rules regarding the relationship between the tenant and the landlord will be found in one law, while the rules that are of a “public law” nature will be contained within a new Housing Regulation Act, e.g., the new Housing Act shall primarily regulate the relationship between the landlords and public authorities.

The new act is set to enter into force on 1 July 2022.
