What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CA
Our landlord failed to return our deposit back within 21 days. I called the property management and told them they were past the deadline and I would be requesting a full return on my deposit. The property manager said her boss had not yet signed the papers and "I sure seemed to know the law..." and to call back in two days. The next day I followed up with a letter via fax and certified mail stating my request - noting CA law regarding the 21 day rule.
Two days letter they sent a partial return on my deposit with a list of itemized deductions, a few of which I do not agree with.
What should I do? They did not return my deposit within the time line. How do I get the rest of my deposit back?? Don't they lose the right to keep any of the deposit if they do not return with 21 days?
I'm so frustrated!
