Hi there. I just moved out of a house I was renting. There were no signed contracts or tenant agreements, etc. I paid a bond of $500. My landlord decided to keep my full bond for damages. The damages are as follows: broken outdoor glass table, broken pendant light glass shade. These damages were not intended. For example, I put an umbrella on the table as it is supposed to be placed. It was extremely windy one night and broke, and while changing a light bulb, one of the pendant glass shades fell and broke off my forehead (fortunately my eyes were not cut). I quoted the replacements and tried to come to an agreement where this money would be taken out of the deposit. The costs were significantly lower than my bond. Instead my landlord was uncooperative and verbally abusive as he had got drunk and high before facing me as he knew I wouldn't be too happy with his decision. This probably won't be considered as wear and tear, but have I got any basis to challenge him in court under property law, or are am I just simply in the wrong here?
