Purchasing real estate

Sparekassen Kronjylland assist you throughout all the stages of purchasing real estate so that you can purchase your home in Denmark worryfree.

Advice before purchasing

Before you buy real estate, it is important to have an overview of what it costs to own and live in your own home in Denmark. We help you with your budget, which includes expenses such as property tax, insurance, heating, electricity, water, and sewage and expenses regarding home improvements and repairs.

Based on your income and the calculated budget for your expenses, we are able to determine how much real estate you can afford. This enables you to proceed with viewing appropriate housing options.

Sparekassen Kronjylland helps you with all financing and insurances.

Advice during purchasing

Once you have found the real estate you wish to purchase, we will handle all the practicalities. We will contact the real estate broker and a lawyer and we will keep you informed during the process so that you are constantly updated.

We also take care of all the practical work connected with the loan pay out and payment to the seller.

Advice after purchasing

After the purchase, we continue to monitor your finances and inform you of any changes in the interest rate that might be financially advantageous to you.

General information about purchasing real estate

There are many considerations prior to the purchase of real estate. The process is often long and involves many decisions along the way. We help you through the whole process and explain all your options so you can make informed financial decisions.

Debit and credit card

Through your salary account, you will have the option of applying for a Dankort, Visa/Dankort and/or a Mastercard (Standard, Gold or Platinum). The Dankort is free, whereas the other cards charge a small annual fee.

Dankort is the most common payment card in Denmark. It is a debit card that you can use in almost any store, restaurant and on the internet. The card is free.

You can combine the Dankort with a VISA card, so you have a debit card that can be used in most countries.

You can also apply for a Mastercard. Depending on your credit limit, daily withdrawal and insurance, you can choose between Standard, Gold or Platinum Mastercard. 


Lost/stolen cards
In the event your card is lost, you must immediately call 87 62 32 62 during normal business hours to block your card.

Should you discover unauthorized payments on your card or you suspect that others have access to your card, you must call to have your card blocked immediately.

During normal business hours, call: 87 62 32 62
Outside normal business hours: Call Nets on 44 89 29 29.


NemID – your digital key

When you come to Denmark and receive a social security number, you must setup a NemID.

This login is your connection to eBanking, public online self-service; the tax service, your pension or your insurances.

With NemID you logon exactly the same way anywhere. You can set up NemID through us, or through the municipality seller on borger.dk.



Your private finances

We will assist you with setting up a budget, setting up the appropriate accounts and establishing regular transfer of funds and automatic direct debit.

The use of our free eBanking provides you with a quick update of your balance, payments and overall status of your finances.

Your finances are more than just the daily payments. You can contact us about purchasing real estate or buying a new car. We will help you with your investments, advise you regarding pension and insurance plans and, above all, make sure that you have the full overview of your finances.

Required Government-Issued Documentation

To setup an account for you, we require copies of the following information:

  • Identity documentation (passport, drivers license with photo id)
  • Health insurance card (Danish health card with your address)
  • Danish CPR-number

We can copy your passport, driver’s license and health card in the branch.

Free accounts

With Sparekassen Kronjylland it is free to setup and have an account.

Salary account

You will get a salary account with an attached Dankort (a debit card you can use at all ATMs and at most stores in Denmark).

The Dankort is free, but we also recommend that you apply for a VISA/Dankort, which costs 198 DKK per year.

Additional cards, such as Mastercard, can also be linked to your salary account.

Your salary is transferred to your salary account and from this account you pay for your daily living, such as food, clothing, gifts and pleasures. We recommend that you set up a budget account and/or a savings account.

Budget- and savings account

A budget account provides a detailed overview of your income, expenses and payment dates to en sure that all bills are paid on time.

Some expenses such as rent and mobile phone, are paid monthly, whereas others are paid every 3 months, every 6 months, or once a year. Every time you receive your salary, a pre-determined amount will be transferred from your salary account to your budget account to match your annual expenses. This ensures there will always be enough money in your account to pay the bills.

We also recommend that you make a deposit to a savings account every month to cover unexpected expenses, holidays, etc.

We will help you set up a budget, the necessary accounts, and establish the various transfer of funds between accounts.

With eBanking you are always up to date and just a click away from your adviser should you need to review your accounts.

Insurance and Pension

Pension and insurance are two sides of the same coin. The insurance is a safety net for you and your family while you are in your working age.


In Denmark, we have a public financed social safety which guarantees a certain income. To maintain an average standard of living after retirement or in case of loss of job capability, however, most people take out insurance with additional coverage. We can inform you of insurances that provides financial safety to you and your family in case of death or loss of job capability.


With a pension plan, you can choose to receive regular installments or a lump sum the day you retire. There are different options with different advantages:
•    Age saving plan - paid out as a one-time payment or in smaller payments over a period of up to 15 years after retirement.   
•    Installment pension plan - paid out in installments for a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of 25 years after retirement.
•    Life-long annuity - paid out for the duration of your life after retirement.

New to Denmark?

If you are new in Denmark, you might need to adapt to numerous things. We have chosen a few subjects that might be of interest to you.


The current interest rate is historically low allowing little gain in having your money placed in a deposit account. Therefore, it makes good sense to consider the alternatives, such as investing in shares, bonds or unit trusts.

Investing in a sensible combination of shares, bonds or unit trusts could easily yield better revenue than the interest rate on a cash account.

It is not necessary to invest a fortune. Even small amounts of money can benefit from being invested.

We can lead you to higher revenue with simple investment solutions. Come and speak with one of our advisers.
