Landlord says I have to paint...& I need advice ...
Ok so the property manager(( supper intendant )) told me 2+ yr's ago that if I picked a neutral light colour the walls wouldn't have to be painted when I move .....
so we picked out a very light very neutral colour together and the Supper went out and purchased it for me ...
Well I was told today by the owner of the building that it has to all be back to the " builders beige" before I leave @ end of this month...
Or he will charge me $1000.00 to have a 800sq feet apt painted
Can he do this legally ?????
What are my rights ??
just say it as it as ..

Your rights are in the agreement you signed.

If the paint is fucked up, you have to re-paint.

Re: Landlord says I have to paint...& I need advice ...
as an ex painter, make sure you use drop sheets everywhere.
also use painter's tape to keep your edges clean.
use a roller on everything first the touch up what is left with a brush
this is the opposite of how its taught but its easier that way.

 Quoting: Chatty-Girl


You should have gotten their permission in writing ; with a written agreement the color was ok.

You should have also kept a copy of the reciept when the landlord bought the paint.


If you don't have anyone of these; it is your word against his and

you will most likely lose because you are just a renter.


Lesson learned

Always get stuff like that in writing or dont paint if you are just renting.

As a landlord in the lease does it say you have permission to paint? If it does you should be ok. Otherwise you may have to re-paint. That's why I say never ever paint somebody else's property no matter if you get permission if you don't like the colors don't move in.

I would call your rental agreement agency you should have something like that in your area and I would not be asking something like that on an online conspiracy theory website. Go and ask the professionals if you aren't sure. Talk to them first before you agree to anything.

I had a landlord who first showed up at our new place with dead bloody chickens and beat my wife and myself before throwing them on the beige carpet.
The cops laughed at us and threatened to take us in on a false report.
they said "Stay away from the bath salts, you assholes"

I used to be a Property Manager in California. There is a law on the books which denotes, "normal wear and tear", after a year of residency. A lot of people are not aware of this law which is prevalent in most states.

It is at the expense of the owner to repaint after a year. If you had permission from management to paint another color it would still fall on the owner to repaint to their liking, after residency for a year or more.

This sounds like a small claims court case to me if they force you to repaint. Keep all receipts and record time spent. You will be glad you did.

You signed the contract. I don't understand why your still thinking about it.

It doesn't matter what anyone "says," the contract is what it is. Sry.

If you are not skilled in the trade of painting, don't paint. Have the super do it. That way it's not your responsibility to re paint.

You could paint that place is less than a day if you knew what you were doing.

hf good luck.

Thats the law here, BC, at least. Wear and Tear, landlord responsible for repainting every year, which they don't, but that means you don't have to if you've stayed a while.

Carpets and lino, 4 years or so, as well. Wear and Tear is important. Along with photos of the place when you move in.
