Is LL required to paint every X years?

Posted by Lola on December 08, 1998 at 13:28:54:

I would like to know if there is a law or tacit law that states that the LL
is required to paint the apartment every X amount of years. We have lived
in our apartment with former landlords 3 years and wiht the present

need to be stripped before we could paint it anymore. Thus, with the SECOND 10%+

One more thing, we do not have a lease. How would this affect our
chances of getting this done?
