Your request involves negotiation. A buyer can ask for anything but not necessarily expect to get it. If the sellers are motivated, they are generally more willing to make repairs or give a credit at closing. It sounds like a simple, low cost job that will be included in the prep work for painting. The bigger question is--is this a battle you want to wage. If you are happy with the home and price you paid, let it go.
a) Reduce offer
b) State you will search for another property
I remind our buyers "pick and choose" battles for request make a win / win situation for all parties.
