Hello, in my tenancy agreement it states I need to contract an aircon servicing company - I did not contract, but regularly serviced anyway. Does the landlord have the right to keep the deposit?

    Much depends on the tenancy agreement. A landlord typically only keeps all or part of the security deposit in instances like where there is failure to pay rent, early termination of the lease or damage to the property. It would appear that by regularly servicing the air-conditioning, you have done as required under the contract. However, no conclusive answer can be given without looking at the relevant term of the contract.
