Th tenant has to handover the house in the same position he has received.  If she deducts the amount, you have to proceed legally and recover from her if the amount is illegally deducted.   The landlord is supposed to issue such estimate and demand the amount, and then state in that notice that if the amount demanded as per estimate is not forthcoming he may have to deduct from deposit.  Contact local advocate if the amount is substantial and seek his advice.

The facts posted do not suggest any justification for the demand made by the landlord. A tenant could be held liable only for the damage or loss to property beyond ordinary wear and tear. Moreover, one party to contract or agreement is not authorised to decide issues in dispute unilaterally.

However, it is the moot question is whether the issue is worth approaching the Court. You may dispute and deny the claim by the landlord through a written communication, preferably through an advocate.

1.  ALL such things by Landlord are usual in Tenanted premises, TILL you file criminal or civil cases against the Landlord.
