A renter will never care about his home as much as the homeowner.

Quite frankly I have never been nor do I want to be a landlord.  Why you may ask is if I would ever buy a property and have someone rent or lease it I would expect them to take care of the property as much as I would.  My wife and I clean rentals when people move out and for the life of me I cannot understand why people do what they do.  It seems some renters just damage the property for spite.  Now before you get on your soapbox there are some who leave the property in good shape.  I am speaking for the vast majority it's just a shame.  That my two cents

80% of the time, this is probably true; however, if the landlord/property owner's expectations are low and they do not have sufficient safeguards in their lease, this is often the case.

I get calls and e-mails from landlords who are headed to court with their departed residents over their deposit and I am not surprised there is no property inspection check-in or check-out checklist and the landlord provided no move-out instructions prior to their residents' departure....landlords need to provide the RULES if they want their residents to abide by them

Point well taken.  There ae those who just pack up and move overnight and don't care about the deposit or any instructions.
