You aren't doing anything wrong but this could cause poor relations between you and the landlord and either your rent will go up or you won't be able to renew your lease. Just a word of caution.
I've never ever been able to claim a rent deduction, under the unspoken threat of either the lease not being renewed or rent increased.
Pretty shameful that this 1970s era malfeasance still goes on, really.
