I find it interesting that overwhelming majority of the 5-star reviews come from people who wrote a total of 1 review - must be very happy customers to write their one and only review about this specific business. In my experience, however, Peder is a negligent and incapable property manager.
As a landlord myself, I would’ve never given them my property. That’s because I don’t enjoy having unhappy tenants who are ignored and literally left in the freezing cold to the point of engaging an attorney for breach of contract proceedings. I believe in paying a management fee and being left in blissful peace, not receiving legal notices because the management company is ignoring its responsibilities.
As a tenant, I feel like I’ve been hitting my head against the wall for three months trying to get these guys to live up to their contractual obligations and provide us with a liveable “luxury” flat as advertised. It was all great up until we signed the contract and paid the fees and deposit. Then things changed - the agency completely lost interest. They expect you to take hours out of your work day to actually go to their office in person for every single bureaucratic admin BS requirement - which they have a lot of. The agent who rented us the flat was negligible and made a number of mistakes that took months to correct, all the while we had to chase him continuously.
The property was delivered dirty and in a poor condition after previous tenants moved out. It took nearly 2 weeks to have the appliances turned on when we moved in and we didn’t have a working fridge the whole time because the property manager is located God knows where, but certainly nowhere near the property, nor does she know anything about it. We had to wait for a landlord to approve the quote for a new fridge, until yet another one of contractors came out and discovered that the fridge was mysteriously switched off through some hidden plug, and not actually broken. A very simple fix had the property manager actually been managing the flat or knew anything about it. Same with a thermostat - a 6 week wait for a contractor electrician because the property manager couldn’t provide us a manual for the unit or assess the problem.
Breakdowns take 6+ weeks to address and require you to take multiple days off work while you are waiting for multiple contractors to come out for quotes first and then to fix - again, after having to chase the property manager continuously. They only seem to take action after breach of contract notices, so prepare to have your attorney on a speed dial. And make sure you are ready to be home in the middle of work day for a 5-hour window on a regular basis (so far 7 separate days in 3 months) if you want to have functioning appliances and flushing toilet/working bathroom.
All in all, be very mindful of this place. We found a flat we thought we could be happy in for a long time, but will have to move once break clause kicks in because we simply cannot handle any more emotional distress of living in a property that is so poorly managed.
