landlord did not do an initial walk in

we moved in right after the previous tenent and never did a walk through or signed anything about the condition of the house on move..after being burned by my last landlord.. i took pictures of all damage with date stamp...I have emailed the landlord to come by and do a walk through to sign off on pre existing damage but the emails are not responded to...will my pictures be enough proof of the condition on move or do i need him to sign and agree on the condition..I do not want any deposit withheld or used to fix damages that were here prior to us movi9ng in northern VA

Pictures are an excellent way to provide proof of condition. Although in some courts, many judges do not consider "digital" photo's as proof. I would not only have pictures but also a statement of damages, sent to your landlord return receipt requested PLUS regular mail. This way it is shown that you have made all attempts at notifying him.
