I am renting an apartment. Move in date was August 1st. The apartment is slightly dirty with cobwebs and the walls definitely need to be painted. Landlord says that she will paint very soon but until then I wouldn't want to move my stuff in while its being painted.
How do I go about asking for this month to be prorated for when I can actually move my stuff in?
UPDATE: I have accepted Rocky's answer and sent the email 08/07 so that everything is in writing. I'll let you all know what happens. Thank you everyone for your input and discussion.
UPDATE2: They painted a bit more and cleaned it but no luck on the pro-rated rent. Thanks again everyone for responding.
