TENANCY AGREEMENT

Tenancy agreement for flats, including rental units for mixed purposes and separate rooms in private tenanted properties.

Authorised by the Ministry of Housing, Urban and Rural Affairs, 1 July 2015.

Unless explicitly permitted in the pre-printed text, no agreed derogations must be stated directly in this agreement (by deleting parts of the text, etc.).

Some of the terms in the pre-printed text are highlighted using bold italics. These terms are derogations from the general rules of the Danish Rent Act. If the parties have agreed upon the italicised- conditions of the agreement, these will not need to be specified in section 11. The terms stated in section 11 are adequately highlighted.

Unless otherwise agreed by the parties on matters from which the regulations may be derogated, the rights and obligations of the landlord and the tenant under this tenancy agreement are regulated in the Danish Rent Act in force.
