and view the tenants and landlords rights and responsibilities to get some very good guidance in situations like these. And the site also features a complaint section in case you need help with enforcement. This information will be helpful to you if you end up filing a small claims action.
Make sure to send a written request in the mail and email as well. If not, your only recourse is a civil suit which would probably cost more money and time than it is worth.
I just spot painted a one bedroom apartment and I was charged $375 if that helps at all.
