We have hung pictures on the wall, and we understand patching those.
Maybe. YOu did not say if this was part of a termination walk-thru, or the middle of your lease agreement. If in the middle- LL is out of bounds and has neither authority or right to ask you to paint. If its termination, unless your lease requires you to paint (that would be unlikely), the LL has no priviliege to demand painting or withholding SD to cover the costs of same. I would argue that normal wear and tear is the standard and picture hanging damage is normal wear and tear.
READ THIS BEFORE CALLING OR EMAILING ME: I am licensed to practice before the state and federal courts in Virginia. We have not established an attorney-client relationship unless we have a signed representation agreement and you have paid me. I do five my 100% effort to get you on the right track with your issue. Sometimes that means legal educational information, sometimes that means counseling and non-legal guidance. You should speak with an attorney to whom you have provided all the facts, before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. I am not obligated to answer subsequent emails or phone calls unless you have hired me. I wish you the best of luck with your situation.
