Re: painting after 11 months by Ted (California) on November 11, 2017 @09:18

Verbally our tenants usually do not ask us about hanging pictures. I use the LPA lease from about couple of years ago. The lease does not have particular language about nail holes but does specify that the tenant needs to return the unit in condition for re-renting which was not the case. Do you recommend particular language for picture hooks and if so what is it? We charged tenant $50 for the holes and $100 for heavy touch up.

California landlord tenant law states that the tenant shall return the rental property back to the landlord in the same condition as received "Less wear and tear". Some holes from hanging pictures is expected. What the landlord would want to prevent is unnecessary large holes or large nails and especially adhesive hangers that damage the wall when removed.
