who is responsible for painting?

In Wisconsin, is the landlord or tenant responsible for painting inside the house?  How often does it legally need to be painted?  Thanks,  Jeremy

Hi Jeremy.  I am in Milwaukee.  There is no "legal" requirement other than the landlord needs to keep the property in good repair.  Some landlords let their tenants paint, others want it done professionally.  Tenants may not know the proper way to paint or use drop cloths, etc.  So you may want to allow your tenants to have their unit professionally painted if they pay for it.  I personally prefer to paint myself to save cost and I have had a lot of experience so I won't do a horrible job.
Not enough info. What's the story behind your question?
