1. Consider your needs

First of all, you must consider what needs you have for premises to rent. How many m2 should the premises be? Do you need your own parking? How long should the rental period be? What should the location be - should the premises be on the outskirts of the city or in the centre? How much are you willing to pay in rent? What should the property look like? Which floor will the room be on? Should the premises be located in scenic surroundings? Should the premises be located close to the beach?

The questions are many. Once you have your needs under control, you can begin your premises search.

2. Search the web for premises

When looking for premises, remember to do a thorough search so that you can find the best premises at the best price. You can search directly for all types of premises on Lokaleportalen.dk, which is one of Denmark's largest portals and search engines for premises rental. The portal provides an overview of virtually all landlords and property companies and premises on the premises market.

3. Contact the landlord

When you have found the premises that you are interested in, you must contact the landlord in order to get a demonstration of the premises so that you can see it with your own eyes.

4. Have the lease checked by a lawyer

When you have found your new premises and you have an agreement with the landlord that they will be let to you, you must sign a lease with the landlord. It is important that you get advice from a lawyer so that you make sure that everything is in order, that it is the optimal contract you have been given by the landlord and that the contract complies with the Commercial Tenancy Act. A contract must contain, among other things, information about the rent, binding period, deposit, heat consumption, condition when moving in, description of the commercial property, etc. Always have a lawyer or legal practitioner check the lease and the lease before you sign it.

5. Check out the landlord properly

If the landlord is himself a tenant in the premises, it is not certain that he may sublet it to you. In that situation, ask the landlord to document his permission to sublet the room.

6. Deposit

Once you have signed the lease, you must pay a deposit to the landlord. The deposit is a security for the landlord should you cause damage to the premises or not pay the rent. The deposit is typically 3 months' rent. Once both you and the premises provider have signed the lease, you will typically have a number of days to transfer the deposit.

7. Make a clear agreement on moving in

Remember to make a clear agreement with the landlord about the transfer. When can you move in? When will you get the keys? etc. etc.

8. Relocation

When everything is in place, you can start moving into your new premises. Remember to report the move to the CVR register when you move your company.
