Are landlords required to paint property between tenants?  I was told that this was a requirement by a previous landlord, that he was required to paint due to potential health hazards (his example was TB).

"Are landlords required to paint property between tenants?"

There is no national law on this.  :)  I also know of no state that requires it, but you'd have to research your own unnamed state's laws. 

"I was told that this was a requirement by a previous landlord ...."

Not sure how TB would have anything to do with paint, but I suspect this landlord was shining you on as it related to charging you for repainting?  Otherwise, doesn't make a lot of sense.

I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics.  If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable.  Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.  :)
