Ready to move out of your rental unit? Will you get your deposit back? Your landlord has 14 days to return your deposit or send you a statement stating why they are withholding all or part of it. Be sure to check what your rental agreement states about deposits, and for more details, read the section of the law addressing deposits. Click here to read the law: (RCW 59.18.280).
