Do I have to re-paint my apartment before I move out, if I painted it myself?
Ask your landlord. You probably won't need to repaint if it still looks OK.

Just to be on the safe side I would repaint it back to the original color, especially if your lease did not allow you to paint the walls in the 1st place. If you didn't have anything in writing saying that you could NOT paint the walls then you may be fine.

Depends on your lease. If it is tasteful and the landlords don't mind you leaving it as is, they will probably not require you to repaint it. With my tenants, I have the option of requiring them to remove all wallpaper and repaint a neutral color. But, if the current color is tasteful and "in style" then I just let them leave it as is. A tastefully painted apartment/house will re-rent faster than builder beige or white.

yes you need to repaint it to the orginal color. the building is only required t put one coat of paint up. so if it takes more than one coat of paint to re cover the color u put up they will charge you.

I would say you probably do, but, do it carefully. if you spill on the carpet, you may wind up losing the deposit anyway. Most of the time, they repaint the apartments anyway. The best answer is to ask your landlord. and whatever is said, PUT IT IN WRITING!!!! I'd worry more about the carpets than the walls. I'd ask and make a decision from there

Always repaint in back to white so your landlord will give you your full deposit back. Doesn't matter if the walls are neutral either,it just gives him a reason to hold part or all of the deposit back from you.

I think you should re paint it white. I haven't rented for several years, but I remember that you couldn't even leave nail holes in the walls.

No you don't need to repaint your apartment. They should do that. So that the owner can get it rented. So no you don't have to. It depends on what your landlord says and if it still looks nice or not

depends what sort of job you have done if it is tidy and tasteful then no, but if you have say painted it all weired colours or have done a bad job then yes.
