Contract information

After you have booked housing you will receive your contracts via e-mail within a few working days. Please allow longer if you have made a booking up to or during a weekend/bank holiday. Always remember to check your spam folder.

The e-mail will consist of the following documents:

1) A rental contract (covers the basic lease including your rent, utilities and deposit)

2) A service contract (covers extra services provided by us, e.g. furniture)

3) .. and a translation of the content of §10 and §11 in the rental contract

In Denmark a rental contract is legally required to be in Danish. This means that the rental contract will be in Danish. However, as a service, we also provide you with an English translation of the content of the most important §s in the rental contract, namely §10 and §11.

You can find an English translation of the entire Danish contract template here

Your legal document will always be the Danish version of the rental contract; the translations are only a service to you.

The service contract is in English. 

Sign and upload the contracts in your workflow

Please read the contracts and the translations carefully before you sign and upload the 2 contracts in your workflow (all pages of the Danish rental contract + all pages of the English service contract). This must be done within 3 days from when the contracts are sent to your e-mail. We will send you an email when your contracts are approved or let you know if something in your uploaded documents is to be corrected.

Please be patient: we cannot guarantee that you will receive feedback straight away or within the 3 days, but you must still upload the contracts within this 3 day timeframe.

If you do not wish to have the booking anymore, please read our booking manual for terms. You cannot leave the booking unattended even if you have not uploaded a contract within the 3 days. 

Both contracts must be signed and all pages of both contracts must be uploaded for your reservation to be approved. It is not sufficient to only upload the pages with the signature field.

Your booking is not valid until it has been approved by the UCPH Housing Foundation. You will be notified if your contract is missing (fully or in part). If you do not react and re-send the signed contracts in full, the UCPH Housing Foundation may cancel your booking.

The contracts must be signed with a real signature (for instance not typed on a computer). Some types of electronic signatures can be accepted.
