Deposit / Redecorate - question

I planned on redecorating the apartment I am moving out of, as our cats sctrached various parts of the wallpaper when they were young.

However, I've just got a quote for the work and almost died......

9800 CHFs!!!

I was expecting around 2.5 to 3k.

The deposit is only 6k.

Would there be any come back on me if I forget about having the work done and just forgo getting my deposit back. I.e. could the landlord claim for more than the deposit?

Sounds like a job for your Haftpflichtversicherung

Yes, your liability is not limited to your deposit. It's possible your insurance will pay, did you tell the insurance about the cats?

Are you allowed to decorate yourself if you are handy ?- that price is outrageous makes my chimney seem cheap at 4000
