Customer Question

I recently moved into a rental house and there are a few things that were verbally promised to me to be done before I moved in. There are large holes in the master bedroom and bathroom doors and nothing was painted before I moved in. The previous tenants clearly painted the walls themselves to suit there own personal taste, but aside from that the walls are dirty, stained, and full of nails and chips. The landlord is refusing to paint and says they will have to review an estimate for the price of replacing the doors before they agree to do so. Do I have any kind of right to make them repaint and replace the doors?

I live in Lowell, AR, USA. So far I have only discussed the matter with my real estate angent and the property manager. I have also asked if it would be possible for me to paint and deduct the cost of paint and supplies from my rent if I send them all receipts for any paint and materials I purchase. They said that I could paint myself, but I would not be reimbursed for any expenses.
