What can a landlord charge a tenant for after they move out?

Question Details:

Can my landlord sue me for interior and exterior paint, plus grout cleaning if our lease does not state that we had to clean it before moving out? Our lease says that we were not to paint without the landlord's permission and the 3 times I asked him (while living there) if I could paint and he said no. When I moved out he still would not allow us to paint but hired a perfessional and charged us $2,481.78. But when he went through the courts he only put the amount of $1,913.00, so I don't even know what that amount is for. This is on top of a deposit of $925 and a credit $300.
