Landlord charging me for repairs I advised him were needed to be done.

Full Question:

Landlord charging me for repairs I advised him were needed to be done a year before I moved out but he kept making excuses. Can he deduct those from my deposit after I move eventhough I kept asking for those items to be fixed?

Answer:

If the repairs were the obligation of the landlord and not you the tenant he cannot charge you for them or deduct them from your deposit. Small Claims Court should be able to assist.
