If you are a national of an EU/EEA country (or Switzerland), you can normally acquire a permanent dwelling in Denmark without permission from the Department of Civil Affairs. Instead, you must file a declaration with the Danish Land Registration Court (Tinglysningsretten).
In the declaration to the Land Registration Court you must declare that you meet one of the following conditions:
- You are an employee in Denmark or another EU/EEA country
- You have sufficient funds to support yourself
- You have an EU/EEA residence card
- You plan to be self-employed
- You plan to open a branch or an agency or provide services in Denmark
You must also meet the following conditions and declare to the Land Registration Court that:
- You are a national of an EU/EEA country (or Switzerland)
- The property will be used as your permanent dwelling
- The property is not a summer house or will be used as such
The Land Registration Court has the power to decide whether you can acquire a permanent dwelling without permission from the Department of Civil Affairs.
