How long does a landlord have to return your security deposit in California

I am moving out soon, and have a very large security deposit, and a difficult landlord. I was wondering what the time limit is for returning my security deposit is and any particular advice you might have besides leaving my house clean and in good repair
Thank you

In most cases I believe it is 21 days. The relevant law is in California Civil Code Section 1950.5 F & G. If you google for it you will find your answers.

California Civil Code Section 1950.5 G: "No later than 21 calendar days after the tenant has
vacated the premises ... the landlord shall furnish the
tenant, by personal delivery or by first-class mail, postage prepaid,
a copy of an itemized statement indicating the basis for, and the
amount of, any security received and the disposition of the security
and shall return any remaining portion of the security to the tenant."


There's a lot more information in there that may be useful to you (such as the requirement for landlords to inform the tenant of their right to a pre move out inspection) so I suggest taking a look.
