: The landlord is required to paint the apartment every 2 (it could be 3)years and cannot take this out of forward or back rent under any circumstances.

In NYC, the Housing Maintenance Code requires painting every three years
or sooner if it is needed. But aside from that, painting is regular
maintenance and not damages covered by a security deposit. Don't let this
landlord get away with this scam.
