How to search for a rental property on BoligPortal

For the best experience, we recommend that you are logged into your user profile when searching for properties on BoligPortal.

  1. Enter the postal code or city in the search field, or choose the desired property type under 'Categories' on the front page of BoligPortal.

  2. Filter and sort your search in the left column
    The more specific your search is, the more relevant results you will see.



How to receive notifications about new properties via Search Agent

We always recommend our property seekers to save their searches as a Search Agent. This way, you'll automatically receive an email whenever a new property matching your search criteria is listed on BoligPortal.

You can create a Search Agent by clicking 'Activate Search Agent' in your search results, as shown in the image above.

You can access your Search Agents by clicking on your profile picture in the top right corner and then selecting 'Search Agents'. Here, you can view, extend, or delete your Search Agents. You can save as many Search Agents as you'd like.

Click on the 'Contact' button on the property listing you're interested in to send a message to the landlord.

We strongly recommend putting effort into sending a good and comprehensive application. The better your message, the greater the chance of being invited for a viewing and being chosen as a tenant.

Contact the landlord by phone

In some cases, you also have the option to obtain the landlord's phone number. However, this is only possible for landlords who have chosen to add a telephone number to their listing.

If there is no number in the contact field, the landlord does not wish to be contacted by phone, and you should therefore use the 'Contact' button.

It is not possible to contact BoligPortal's customer service to obtain a phone number or other information about a landlord.
