Non-profit associations often use waiting lists. Thus, you may need to wait a while before being offered an apartment or a house. In addition, you must be aware that in order to rent through a non-profit association, you must be a member and pay a yearly fee. However, the monthly rent is often less than if you rent from a private company. In Randers, there are several non-profit associations such as Lejerbo and RandersBolig.
Randers also has a number of subsidised apartments.
If you want to avoid a waiting list or paying a fee to a non-profit association, you can choose to rent an apartment or house from a private company or person. You can find privately rented apartments and houses on the internet and in one of the local newspapers.
Finally, you can also choose subletting. This could be an advantage if you are only staying here for a short amount of time, as the apartment or house may be furnished.
You need to get permission from the Ministry of Justice to buy a house or an apartment in Denmark if you intend to use the house or apartment as your permanent residence. However, if you have lived in the country for at least five years, permission for buying is not necessary.
Cooperative housing is a group of houses or apartments owned by a cooperative housing society. This type of living option usually has a social aspect, which can be beneficial if you want to meet new people when moving to Randers.
