Yes, this is basically a source of income for the agents...use the deposit to upgrade the apartment and charge the incoming tenant the higher rent.
With such steep deposits, it can really be used to basically amounts to fraud in some countries as you said. The thing is they do everything by the book.
I don't understand...if you do a proper inspection when you move in there shouldn't be a problem when you move out. If there is, it is because the incoming inspection wasn't thorough enough. Many tenants do not place enough importance on the incoming inspection and realise their mistake when they move out. When you take over a new house/apartment you should make sure that absolutely everything is written down. You also have ten days in which to add things to the list restrospectively (the number of days may vary from canton to canton I understand).
