Can a landlord keep security deposit or first months rent since i cant hook up the water

I signed the lease, but because I owe the water a little money they won't hook up in the new house can the landlord keep any portion of my money

Yes, he can keep your deposit because now he has to pay for advertising and you broke your agreement. If there was no contingency for him to give you your deposit back then he does not have too! He could just to be nice. It is your water bill not his. You should speak to him about your problem.. Perhaps he will come up with an alternate solution.

No, the security deposit has nothing to do w/it.
