Does the landlord or the tenant bear responsibility for the time it takes to repaint before move-in?
I’m moving to an apartment in Jersey next week. I will be paying for the place starting August 1, but am not actually moving in until the 3rd or so because my landlord will be repainting and fixing up the place on Aug. 1 and possibly also the next day. Should I ask for a credit for that day or two, or is this time “on me”?
I have tried googling this to no avail – if you can find any links that look promising, but have tiny print and lots of words so you don’t want to read it all, please send ‘em my way!
Edited to add: I’m also in my current place for another month, so I don’t have to pay for a hotel or anything.
