I am a tenant in California, and will be moving out of my current home, which I rented for 20 months through a property management company. After giving my thirty-day termination, I had to hassle the company to give me move-out instructions. They finally emailed me a copy, of which I disagree with one aspect. The form states "Painting is based upon a three year life span. If you live in the property less than three years, you will be charged for a prorated share of the painting." I do not feel as though I should be charged for painting. There is no damage whatsoever to the walls, and the place was NOT painted before we moved in. I do not see anything stating this in the rental agreement either. Is this fair in the state of California? I left a very large security deposit and would like to see it all back.
