Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening. Your landlord no longer has any right to keep any portion of your security deposit. You should send your landlord a letter...sent certified, return receipt requested...demanding the return of your security deposit within a short specified period of time or you will have no choice but to file suit to recover it. If the landlord does not timely comply, file a claim in small claims court.
I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!

Am I only entitled to my security deposit or more?
Under Kansas law, you will be entitled to your security deposit plus an additional amount equal to 1.5 times your security deposit. I'm sorry..I should have been more detailed with my response. I apologize for that!
