What can I do before the fact
to prevent or discourage my shady landlord from failing to refund all or part of my security deposit when my lease term is up?

I've been in shady landlord situations frequently enough to know that this particular shady landlord will likely try some security deposit shenanigans, despite our having kept the place spotless over the two years we've been here.
What can I do before the lease ends to put the landlord on notice and/or otherwise decrease the possibility of being stiffed for part of the cash?
I'm in Virginia, US of A, if that makes a difference.
