What are my rights to a holding deposit refunded?

Question Details:

I left a "holding deposit" for a property to lease. After the holding deposit was made, the landlord kept changing the terms of the lease to a point where we decided to not lease from him. He changed the price, he didn't want to give us the storage area in the garage (which he initially said that we could use), he wanted to increase the lease price to include his storage cost, etc. We told him we will not lease under these terms and want our deposit back. At first he said he would refund the money except his storage cost (which he didn't move anything out yet), then changed his mind again, saying he would not refund anything. What can I do and what does the law read in this matter?
