I have rented a home in Long Beach, Ca. for almost 6 1/2 years. The previous tenant resided in this home for several years before me. Our landlord didn't paint the home after the previous tenant vacated and the paint was worn. Since the landlord didn't paint, we asked if we could paint some areas ourselves. He agreed to allow this. Now we plan to leave and he expects us to return the areas we painted back to the basic white the unit initially had (we upgraded to soft greens and neutral tan tones). We don't think he intended to paint at all and is basically using the fact that we painted previously to get a new paint job for free.
Is there a law regarding how often a unit should be painted? It seems like he should be responsible for new paint after 6 1/2 years.
