If a landlord is not returning the security deposit (and you are correct that it would be about 60 days depending on the state), then the tenant can bring an action in court (small claims court) for the return of the security deposit. You are also correct, that the landlord would have to itemize the deductions. We can discuss more if you would like to do so.
