repainting

5 posts in this topic

Does the lease agreement require painting? Unless a lack of new paint is a health or safety hazard, the landlord may not be required to paint the walls between tenancies. You may want to read the Pennsylvania Landlord and Tenant Act as a good resource to learn more about this subject matter. For further clarification, you may wish to consult with a local Pennsylvania Landlord-Tenant Lawyer.

I cannot fathom that there are any laws requiring a landlord to repaint between tenants. You may want to check with local housing authority.

Are there any laws on the books about repainting between tenants here in Pa??

No, there is no law requiring it.

If you are a prospective tenant it's up to you to accept or decline a rental based on it's condition and never rely on a landlord's promise.

Make sure the rental is the way you want it before you sign a lease and hand over any money.

If you want it painted and he won't paint, walk away and look elsewhere.

Meantime, study the PA landlord tenant statute and understand your rights and obligations:
