Does anyone know if there's a law re: how quickly your apartment security deposit is supposed to be refunded to you once you move out at the end of your lease? I can't find anything specific so I was wondering if anyone knew. My lease ended March 31 and the building management said it could take up to 8 to 10 weeks for my security deposit to be refunded. That seems like too a long time to wait for my money to be refunded. I'm sure the building management would throw a fit if they had to wait that long for rent to be paid.
Does anyone know if there's a requirement for the deposit to be refunded sooner or do I just have to be patient and wait it out? Thanks.
