There is a reason why you do a walk through of an apartment before you sign a lease. Never "assume" anything that you don't see will be done. Remember that the only governing document regarding your apartment will be your lease that you sign with the landlord. Read it carefully and get any promises in writing.

: : Does a landlord have to tell you what he's going to fix in the apartment before you sign a lease? e.g. Painting, fixing faucet, new counter top, etc.

: - You can get a 'rider' (amendment) to your lease where you can specify those items. Both you and your landlord should sign it.
