When moving in, one of the most common questions we get is, “Can tenants paint the wall?” As a property management company, this is what we personally do to protect you, the landlord.
Any planned painting must be requested
We put in all of our leases that if any type of painting that will be used in the unit, they need to both request it in writing and let us know the color in which they’re going to use.
Typically we will also state that it has to be painted back to our standard color. We have a standard color, it is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. Why is that important? Because we know that we can go into any unit and touch it up and not have to try to match colors and spend the expensive time and money doing so.
Also, it is a very neutral color that we love, our tenants love as well. However, not all tenants love it, so they might ask to paint and when they do when we ask for those colors in advance, we want to make sure it’s not something crazy like pink or black but something neutral.
No matter what, we’re still going to ask them to paint it back to our colors. Furthermore, we will make sure that they understand that if it’s not done properly and there’s any type of paint on baseboards, ceilings, or floors we’re going to hold them responsible for the repairs of that as well.
What will happen if the tenants leave?
If and when the tenants leave, we give them set pricing of how much it is to paint a room, a wall, a ceiling and any type of baseboards in the room so they know how much they’re going to be responsible for and upon our move out inspections, we’re going to tell them, “Hey, if you don’t paint this back by a certain date, we’re going to have to charge you for it,”
Again your property can go back to the state in which it was in, in a condition and that shows very well and you don’t have to worry about it.
If you or anyone else you know, is looking for a property manager that can help you through situations, such as this and make sure that you’re protected and that you don’t get a unit that’s full of different colored walls that doesn’t show well after a long time, please think of Green Ocean Property Management, where you get more than a property manager, you get peace of mind.
