It really depends on the damage done to the paint. If you have a tenant in there that takes very good care of the walls, non-smoker, etc etc... Depending on the paint you used, I'd say maybe every 2-3 years. Now, if you have tenants with kids, or a smoker, or someone else to puts a little more stress on the paint, you may have to paint it earlier. I tend to go by sight more than by years. Does it look nice? Are there markings on the wall? Stains? That sort of thing. Hope that helps!

I agree that every 2-3 years is a good standard.  But it does all depend on the tenant and the condition the aparment is in when they left.  I've had some fabulous tenant's who left the place a horid mess, while others were very considerate and left it as they found it - clean.
