Charlie’s Roof is a totally new kind of relocation company. Our goal is to give you a tailored service at the best possible price. Your needs are what’s important to us; you are not a number on a spreadsheet or another case we want to get ticked off our to-do list. Each client can assemble their own custom package of services, choosing only the services most relevant to their needs. You will then work with our team of dedicated agents who have themselves experienced the challenges and opportunities of relocating, but who also know Danish society and its rental market inside out. Our business operates on the premise of good relationships with landlords, but we remain 100% independent in order to have access to all potential housing options and to maintain complete objectivity.
Give us a call or set up a meeting and let’s see how we can help you out.
Below you will find our services and prices. You can also download a price list here (PDF format).

For singles, couples and families
For singles, couples and families relocating to or within Denmark, the Home Search is the Charlie’s Roof service that will help you find what you are looking for. We search the rental market specifically for you, based on your criteria. You undertake viewings of suitable properties yourself while your relocation agent maintains dialogue with the landlord, negotiating your contract where possible. A fraud check on your contract is always included, so you know you will get the best, fairest deal possible.
The initial payment of 3250DKK covers the cost of the search and arranging viewings of suitable properties. The success fee of 3000DKK is applicable when accommodation has been secured.

We make contact with landlords of properties you are interested in. Due to our many contacts in the industry we have significantly elevated odds of being able to secure a property on your behalf. We negotiate rent and terms where possible.
We know many landlords, investors, administration companies and agencies working within the property rental industry. As our client you can avail of direct offers from these sources, that aren’t offered else where on the market.
As our client you can rest assured that you will never fall victim to one of the scams that exist in Copenhagen’s rental market. We check through each contract that our clients receive. You are welcome to purchase a detailed lease contract explanation if you wish to more thoroughly understand the contents of the contract.
We undertake viewings on your behalf. We can video call you from the property, or take photos and videos to share with you afterwards. We will give you our opinion on the condition, rent level etc. We negotiate with the landlord on your behalf, where possible. This is available through a package or as a stand-alone service when you have found accommodation on your own. We will still act on your behalf to evaluate the property and be ’on your side’ in relation to the landlord. This can be of particular use when you are not in Denmark but wish to secure a property.
Lease Contract Explanation
We will choose 5-10 suitable accommodation options in advance, in accordance with your housing criteria. We will pick you up from the airport, your hotel or whichever pick up point is most convenient. We will drive you and your family to each option and give you an in depth viewing at each property. At the end of the day we will discuss the options and then secure your favourite option for you, including undertaking any necessary negotiations. If you buy the housing tour as a single service (having found the properties on your own), we will coordinate the viewing times with the landlords, as well as undertaking any possible negotiations on your behalf. In this we have a distinct advantage as we likely already have a relationship with the landlord.
Key Pick Up
If you have made a rental agreement for accommodation and are unable to be present to pick the key up, we can do this on your behalf. You can then arrange to pick it up from our office or at another convenient meeting point. During normal working hours (09.00 – 17.00) the charge is 1.000 kroner. If the time at which we must pick the key up from the landlord or at which you pick the key up from us is outside these hours, a charge of 1.500 kroner applies.
Move In Report (incl Key Pick Up)
We act as your representative in completing a move-in report of your property. This is very important in ensuring that your deposit is returned to you after the rental period is over. We document the condition of each room, including photographs. We will store the pictures for up to 4 years. If you choose to include key pick-up, the key will be available for you to collect from our office (see key pick-up section).
Move Out Report
Many rented apartments in Denmark are unfurnished. We can provide basic furniture in order for your apartment to be ready for you to move in to. Included are a bed, a table, chairs, lamps and kitchen equipment – just to get you started. It costs 5.000 kroner per room and then the furniture is yours to keep. Alternatively, we can be hired to receive and set up furniture that you have ordered for delivery, so that your apartment is ready for you when you arrive. Prices on request.
Residence and Work Permit
Residence and Work Permit Extension
Relocation Meeting (via Skype)
You will meet with an agent, either via Skype or face-to-face. They will help you get feel for the Danish rental market and a variety of other factors that will impact your relocation and your experience here. This is especially beneficial for clients who are not sure which area to consider living in, not familiar with costs etc.
20 page Local Guide
A guide is prepared for you based on your location, your job, your interests and your specific situation. It is a personal guide written specifically for you in order to help you navigate your way around your new area with ease. It will include things like where you can do your favourite sport, what public transport to take to work/activities, where your local pharmacy/school/library is etc. This is provided for Charlies Roof clients by Dejlige Days Welcome.
3 hour Relocation Tour
An agent will take you on a 3 hour tour of your new neighbourhood. They will not only show you the highlights of your new area but also the basics such as where to buy groceries, how to get from A to B etc. Furthermore, it gives your the opportunity to talk to someone who is knowledgeable about Denmark and the challenges of relocating, and ask any questions you may have.
Accommodation Already Found Package
If you are abroad and have found a rental on your own, we will finalise the deal for you – viewing the property, making sure your contract is not fraudulent and negotiating terms where possible. You will also receive a full explanation of your Danish lease contract.
Move Out Package
This package looks after all of the most important elements related to moving out. We will complete a move-out report, which is paramount to getting your deposit back. We will order painters, decorators, and a moving company, as necessary. We will close down your utility accounts and help you to settle any open accounts.
