I agree with the others that 1) the work done does not, in my opionin, justify a rent reduction and that 2) your landlord isn’t taking your security deposit–he’s just saying that if you don’t pay your full rent, the different will be deducted from the deposit.
I also think your emails are a bit demanding and not very tactful (unless I guess you used to have a different landlord for the same apartment who did give you reductions?). Rather than saying “Would you consider a rent reduction?” you’re just basically demanding he give you whatever discount you decide you want. Not even a please or thank you?
