It is a smart idea to photograph any damage that you find in your new apartment or home for rent. This will help document and show the actual damage to the landlord and confirm the damage was there before you took over the rental. Keep photographs in a safe place so that you will be able to locate them when the lease is up. It is also a good idea to help date the photographs by having a dated newspaper in the photographs or making sure the dated is stamped on the back of the pictures when developed.
