Reprise de Bail

Dear forumers,

Hope you can help me with an advice on this issue.
I am currently subrenting an apartment (officially through the regie). I like it a lot and want to retake the lease from the current owner. However, the contract the regie sent me concerns me: there will be no work done and no etait de lieu (inspection) carried, while they want my signature that I will return the apartment in the same condition it was when the current owner signed the lease (which was 6 years ago!). Obviously there has been some minor wear/damage to the apartment e.g. some floor cracks, wall marks in those 6 years. The owner is happy to pay for whatever needs to be done, but they completely refuse to inspect/assess the apartment, saying its between the two of us how we will do this. I really like this apartment and want to continue living here, but this is a very weird situation and I dont want to be forced to pay for some floor cracks that happened before my arrival in the future.

Has anybody been in this situation? What can I do?
Thank you
