Can a landlord withhold portions of a security deposit for items that are ordinary wear and tear (e.g., lightbulbs and batteries) if the lease itself says they can do so? 38-12-103 (1) says the landlord cannot withhold a security deposit for ordinary wear and tear items and 38-12-103(7) seems to say that the tenant cannot waive this (i.e. that a waiver in the lease is not effective)
