Announcements of forced sales of real property

Annual statistics for requested forced sales and forced sales carried through, broken down by judicial district and type of property are available at the home page of Courts of Denmark.

Comparability - geographical

Statistics of forced sales of real property are also compiled in other countries, but no system has been established for these by Eurostat or others as it has been done for other short-term statistics. Since there are no regulations governing this domain, Statistics Denmark and other national statistical offices are free to decide on the method of recording as well as counting unit. It is particularly important to pay attention to this if you want to compare statistics across national borders.

Comparability over time

From the beginning of these statistics in 1979, it is possible to compare the property categories at the following level:

  • Agricultural properties
  • One-family houses
  • Owner-occupied flats
  • Summer houses
  • Properties with two or more flats
  • Combined residential and business properties
  • Building sites

Due to the Structural reform in 2007, there is a geographical breach of data. In addition, the property categories: business properties, industrial properties and warehouses, not stated type of housing, non-active farms and other built-up sites are not continuous for the entire life of this set of statistics.

With the transition from manual to digital recording in connection with the publication of the figures for January 2018, minor shifts may occur internally between the numbers of forced sales within the individual property categories.

Coherence - cross domain
