Note: This is an article about BoligPortal's free service for creating and managing rental contracts, which is currently available in Danish. Therefore, images and some phrasing in this guide may appear in Danish. If you have any questions or need assistance with your rental contracts, you're always welcome to contact BoligPortal's Customer Service.

The tenant's CPR number is only used in connection with giving authorization – for example, when signing up for electricity through one of BoligPortal's partners.


When using BoligPortal's rental contract builder, you will be asked for the tenant's CPR number on the page for filling out tenant information.

CPR should only be filled out if you have agreed with the tenant that you, as the landlord, will register them with a utility company.

Note: The tenant's CPR number will not be visible in the final rental contract – it is used solely internally for authorization purposes.


Rental contract without CPR number

If the tenant does not have a Danish CPR number, or if you do not wish to register your tenant for electricity, leave the CPR number field empty.

Also, remember to inform that the tenant must register with an electricity provider themselves. You do this under 'Forbrug'.

Here, you will find the section 'Hvordan afregnes el?' and click on 'Mellem lejer og forsyningsselskab' and then 'Lejer står for rettidig tilmelding'.
