: Is the the management company obligated to finish repairs/painting etc of an apartment prior to a new tenant moving in otr can it legally wait until the old tenant is out and the new one is in to do the painting etc?

Unless you got the repair/painting promise in writing, you're probably out of luck: your lease probably says 'as is'.

One exception: in NYC: as part of the lead-based paint abatement law passed last summer: the floors must be smooth and, if there is peeling paint, the paint repaired BEFORE you move in. Read that law on Tenant.Net.
