What is the law regarding painting an apartment?

It's up to the landlord/lady; however, there maybe regulations, in the State's Civil Codes, which would vary depending on the State. Usually (in California), it's the landlord's/lady's responsibility to paint before re-renting or because of normal wear-and-tear; if it's for decorative reasons, that would be up to the tenant.
