My landlord had the entire interior of the house painted before we moved in and then when we moved out, the new tenants moved in before we could handle the paint issue, and we had a few holes covered with putty, etc. -- normal things you would find after a house is lived in.
We bought paint and asked the new tenants to do it since we would have be going around them to get it done, since she let them move in before our 30 days were up and the new tenants agreed to do it for free. The landlord said she wouldn't make any claims on our deposit for it.
Then when we got our deposit letter, she charged us $600 dollars, saying every wall needed to be repainted after the new tenants leave to ensure that it's satisfactory to her. And we didn't buy enough paint.
Can she actually do this?!
