    You'd have to use some no more gaps or plaster and fill the crack, then sand it back and paint over it.

    Magic marker for the marks, we use a ready made plaster...comes in a blue tub, sorry I cant remember the name to fill any sport then paint over them lucky in this house there is left over paint in the garage but in a previous house we have taken a chip of paint to bunnings and gotten it colour matched. Love renting eh.
    Is it spak filler? I used this on the last rental I moved out of.
    The house was freshly painted before we moved in. I sugar soaped the walls, then magic eraser for stubborn marks, spak filler for any dents, then painted over dents and any marks that still remained.

    I wouldn't worry about the crack in the wall. There is no way the RE could blame you for that. The house has obviosly moved.

    So does that look like one of those cracks? Or does it look like its done by a person?

    It just looks like the house has moved. I'm not sure how a person could cause a crack like that?

    That looks like the house settling to me. It definately should not be your problem but you should tell your real estate agent about it

    Unless u live with the hulk who has tried to lift the house to get something underneath, u couldnt have caused that crack. Def the house settling.

    So stressful tho, i hate moving!
