Tenancy laws differ between countries, making it important that you are aware of your rights as a tenant when you move to Denmark.
Tenancy law is complex and often impenetrable for both the landlord and yourself as the tenant. There are also significant differences between different types of lease and even between municipalities. This means that as a tenant you may find it difficult to predict potential conflicts, disagreements, and areas where doubts may arise. It may also be difficult to understand which rights apply to your situation.
