is the pipe leaking the landlord responsibility in California?

we just noticed that the facial tub sink is leaking through the rushes pipe, and we are ready to move out March 31st 2011. we sent the Landlord email regarding the leaking, but the landlord choose to neglect the problem, she didn’t reply my email. this is a personal owner.
Now we worry that she will deduct the repair from our deposit after we move out , this Condo is very old, built in 1981. How can we avoid the deduct from deposit in this case. what kind of procedure should I take before we move out?
Thanks a lot for your help.
