We moved out of our rental unit last month; After repeated requests for water bills on a timely basis, our landlord stuck us with five months of water bills at once in May 2012 and now is deducting five months of water bills from our security deposit. He insisted on keeping the bill in his name, and he receives the bill every month. Our lease is relatively silent on the issue, except that it specifies that the tenant is responsible for all utilities (despite his insistence on keeping the water bill in his name). Can we dispute his deduction of five months of water bills at once? We have numerous documentation of our requests for the water bills since October 2012.
