Rented accommodation is either privately owned or owned by a non-profit building association.
You can put your name down on a waiting list for an apartment in a non-profit building association. This means that you can rent the apartment when your name appears at the top of the list. But this may take many years.
Privately-owned housing associations rarely have waiting lists. In Denmark there is no central register of vacant private rental housing. Here, it is the owner who decides where to place the ads for the vacant apartment and who is to rent the vacant apartment.
When moving into rented accommodation, it is advisable take pictures of any defects and faults, e.g. the condition of heaters, appliances, walls, floors, etc.) and send this information to your landlord right after you move in.
