Answer:

The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly.

Under A.R.S. 33-1321  a landlord generally has 14 days not including weekends or holidays to either return the security deposit or an itemized list of charges that came out of the security deposit.  There may be other factors to consider that an attorney would be better able to address.   The statute above contains information about what may affect the security deposit after a tenant has moved out.

If there is a possible claim that may be pursued, the relevant Statute of Limitations on this issue would dictate if a party may still file.
