How long is a reasonable time to return a deposit?
My outgoing tenant has said he won't return the keys until I pay him back the deposit. I have said that isn't acceptable and that I will return the deposit some time after he has left when I have had time to check all bills have been paid and that there are no damages which were not immediately obvious. I would like to tell him what is a typical time it takes for landlords to return deposits. I would be pleased to receive other's opinions on this. Also for the RLA to tell me whether there is an official stance on this.
