Frequently asked questions
What is a tenancy agreement and why is it important?
A tenancy agreement is a legally binding written contract between a landlord and a tenant. Formular A9 is the approved form used for private renting in Denmark. It includes all the various details of the tenancy such as area, number of rooms, rent, deposit and much more. Be very careful with §11 which outlines the special conditions. In this section, the landlord may include certain exceptions and additions. This could be about pets, time limitations, regulation of the rent etc. It’s important when drafting a contract that it satisfies both landlord and tenant. The contract should make both parties feel safe, thus minimising the risk of disagreements later on. LEJKA makes the process easy and secure by offering the tenancy agreement as a user-friendly online form and digital signing with NemID.

What is particularly important to be aware of?
It’s important that you keep a close eye on the special conditions in §11. This is where you can include additions or deviations from the standard terms in the contract.

We have included a list of approved texts based on the most common additions and deviations, and they can easily be added to your contract.

What happens when I have completed the online form?
When you have filled out the online form, you can either save it as a draft or submit it for signing with NemID via our partner esignatur. After you and your tenant have signed the agreement, it will be available for both of you at My LEJKA. This is where you will also find other tools such as contacts, shared documents and overview of rental payments.
