Denmark Foreign Ownership Info
There are a number of restrictions for foreigners purchasing property in Denmark. While it can be difficult for foreigners to purchase land it is far from impossible. Foreigners may not purchase property in Denmark unless they have previously lived in Denmark for a period of at least 5 years; they are an EU national legally working in Denmark; or they are a non-EU national who has a valid business or residence permit.

Further, there are areas of Denmark - especially in coastal and holiday home areas - that have special restrictions against foreign ownership. Properties that are not in popular coastal areas are available to foreign buyers as long as they satisfy the requirements stated above.

Prospective buyers may also choose to form a private company (known as an Anpartsselskab or Aps in Denmark) if the requirements for individual purchase seem difficult to meet.

While the procedure to purchase can seem daunting, the beauty of Denmark makes the effort well worth it. For the majority of purchase, buyers can expect to have the entire procedure completed within a half year. Hiring an attorney familiar with Danish real estate law (especially coastal restrictions) is highly recommended.   - Read Less
