If you are living from 9 years, then you must spent some money for renovating and repairing or maintenance of your house, you can claim the whole amount from the landlord and I believe that would be a huge amount.
Unlikely in an apartment. People usually live in them for years and do nothing but change light bulbs. In fact if any painting, walls, flooring etc. has been changed they may even insist on it being returned to the original state. (For paint most leases I have signed insist only that any paint/dirt can be covered adequately with a single coat of light paint.)
