New Lease - Is LL required to paint apt?

Postby paul749 » Wed May 07, 2003 5:14 pm

Is the LL required to paint apt when you enter a new lease for a new apt?

Is the LL required to paint the apt when you renew your old lease? Last time painted was 7 years ago when I moved in.

b. In occupied dwelling units in a multiple dwelling, the owner shall:

1. Paint or cover the walls and ceilings with wallpaper or other acceptable wall covering; and

2. Repaint or re-cover the walls and ceilings with wallpaper or other acceptable wall covering every three years and more often when required by contract or other provisions of law.

this is what the code says.

LOL, I know, but you missed the first line. Public areas. Like halways etc outside of the Apt. Basically, I dont paint any of my tenants apt, unless it needs it. They are happy and so am I.
I didn't miss the first line: "Painting of public parts and within dwellings"

LLs are req. to paint every three years inside apts. Housing Ct. would say the same.
