BL is the interest organization representing about 700 housing associations, which manage almost 20% of Denmark’s dwellings. The housing stock is divided in 8,000 sections. Non-profit- housing exists in all 98 Danish municipalities and almost all non-for-profit housing associations are members of BL.
There are big differences between BL’s members. The biggest ones manage over 30,000 apartments while there are some member associations that manage less than 100 apartments. BL works for the interests of its members and their tenants by increasing its influence in the economic, technical and social development of the non-profit housing sector.
Concretely, BL represents the non-for-profit housing associations by providing them with services and advice and by educating tenants and staff on “tenant-democracy” and administration rules.
