Should landlords pay to paint my apartment?
I have been living in my current apartment for over three years now (after replacing a previous tenant . . . and i know it’s been at least five plus years since a full “turnover” in the apartmnt where the lease ended, everyone moved out, and management showed/rented the apartment)
when i moved in, there were plenty of marks and smudges on the walls (especially in the hallway by the door) but over the years more have obviously appeared and I think I have hit the point where a nice fresh coat of paint would be amazing.
My question is, is it reasonable to request that my building manament group paint the apartment for me? or at least pay for the paint but paint myself?
what are the rights as a DC tenant?
