The landlord can only keep a security deposit for the reasons set forth in Civil Code section 1950.5, subdivision (b). I suggest that you thoroughly familiarize yourself with the statute, which you can read here: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=civ&group=01001-02000&file=1940-1954.1
