not justified deduction from apartment deposit

Question

After moving from my previous apartment, the landlord has deducted the cost of boiler maintenance from the deposit, but has never shown me a copy of the receipt. I have asked several times to see proof that the check has been done, but the landlord refuses to provide it. Is it not my right to have a receipt for something I have paid for? Who can I contact to convince the landlord to show me the receipt? Thank you for any information provided!

You needed to pay for this anyway and you didn't. You could take the landlord to court (juge de paix) to force him to produce a piece of paper attesting that the maintenance was done, but what would you actually gain by doing this?
