Re: Deposit return, any rules?

He is able to keep the deposit until all communal costs, heating, repairs etc have been settled. If the money is on the blocked account then you agree to release the CHF 250 to him, and he agrees to release the balance to you. He should do this as soon as the accounts are settled, but he has 12 months maximum to do so.

Again this is not correct.

Landlord is not allowed to keep the whole deposit because of settling some bills. It is only allowed to keep a reasonable.portion and has to be justified. Rest needs to be released as soon as possible.

See post above with explanation.
