My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: california
we have moved out and completely cleaned the house. The walls were "normal" when we left; ie a few small nail holes from pictures and maybe a few hand prints, etc. We didn't paint any walls any new colors or anything like that. The landlord claims to have had the house completely repainted for $3,000 and insists we pay for 1/3 of that ($1,000).
From what I have read, the walls are considered "normal wear and tear" and the landlords/owners responsibility
The house has 90% hardwood floors, they agree that the floors are left in good condition but now claim that they "arent shiny enough" and want us to pay to have them "shined" (not cleaned, as we cleaned them)
I don't have any knowledge of hardwood floor rules
We moved out feb17, showed the house to the property manager on feb 19, it my understanding that they have 21 days to return our security deposit, which would be March 11.
Thank you in advance for your time,
