Terms of use of Housingtarget.com

If you have any questions or problems, you can always write to [email protected] for personal service.

Housingtarget.com is owned by the Danish company HT Medier Aps. As a general rule, these Terms and any other agreement between The Service and the User are subject to Danish law. Read more in the terms item 9.1 and 9.2.

All information and communication on the website is in English, including legal information, mails from the service, mail dialogues with user support etc.

Emphasized points

A central part of The Service is a housing search engine, which is primary created by robot crawling and indexing of many hundereds of websites, containing thousands of housings, many times daily. The search engine gives a constantly updated overveiw over vacant housing, where paying users get access to the whole database. This means that housing seekers from the whole world looking for new housing in European countries saves a lot of time that should otherwise be used to find all relevant websites and constantly search these for new housing. Our goal is to gather as many housing rentals as possible and to make the search engine as complete as possible, to give our users as comprehensive an overview of vacant housing rentals as possible. The housing in the Search Engine come from all different kind of sources that we see as satisfactory, including real estate agents, real estate companies, housing associations (publicly available housing), potentially housing advertised on other housing portals and potentially housing advertised on social media. In addition, housing swap is also included. We only include housing where you can contact the landlord directly (possibly after registration). It is emphasized that generally there is no agreement about crawling with the landlords which we refer to. Only a small amount of the housing in the search engine is created directly by landlords that are registered on The Service. We do not include housing where you need to make a purchase to identify the landlord.

You must be a PremiumUser to get access to most of our services. As a PremiumUser you sign up for an ongoing subscription, that can always be cancelled at the end of a subscription period. It is not possible to buy access to information about the housings individually or in the form of a ticket card. The subscription has no binding and is weekly, since short subscription periods result in a high degree of flexibility which is optimal for the housing search process. The User is informed about the subscription and the price on all pages and in all parts of the purchase process: On the page that shows the search result, in the user creation popup that is shown when you click the button “Get more info” on the page with the search result, on the purchase page, on the page where card information is inserted, on the approval page (after the purchase is done), in the mail received after the purchase and in the text on the invoice.


We emphasize that errors in the search engine may occur. See the description of the reasons to errors here. On all housing rentals there is a reporting feature, where users can report data errors in the housing rental, or report if the source that is linked to does not work.

We emphasize that The Service does not have an in-mail system. The Housing seeker is either linked to the website where the housing rental is found, or receives the contact details to the Landlord (in the cases where the housing rental is created directly by a user).

If The Service is notified that a Housing seeker ad contains personal data or sensitive personal information, the Housing seeker ad will be deactivated immediately. The Service has the right to show the uploaded content on other websites, on social media and on its business partners’ media. The User must disable the Housing seeker ad immediately and within no longer than two days, when the search is no longer relevant. If The User fails to do so, The User’s account will be closed immediately, and the advertisement deleted.

There are several situations where errors can occur, for example: Partly a Landlord, who has created a Housing advertisement on The Service, forgets to deactivate the advertisement when the housing is no longer available. Partly it cannot be avoided that a housing is taken down from an external website for a short period of time before The Service's robot visits the website where the housing is advertised. Partly it cannot be avoided that housing that is no longer on the market sometimes will continue to appear as available on external websites, because the webmaster of the external website forgot to update this.

It is the responsibility of the Housing seeker to validate that a Landlord holds the right to let the housing, and that all information about a housing is correct, before an agreement is made with a Landlord, and before any payment is transferred to the Landlord.

The Service has no inmail system, that makes it possible for the Landlord to be anonymous. Instead, the contact info of the Landlord is received directly. This may happen either in the form of a link to the website, where the landlord has advertised the housing, or in the form of direct contact info, if the landlord has created a user profile and created the housing directly on the platform. It is emphasized that the Service only provides the contact information of the landlord. The Service thus has no responsibility that the Landlord replies to inquiries in a given period of time.
