It was probably a year ago when I paid around $30000 for a security deposit to lease a warehouse. My business partner was cheating me out of my money, so I decided that I did not want to move in to the warehouse. I never moved in or even set a foot in to the warehouse. I told the landlord about my situation, and he said he will pay me half of my deposit if somebody else moves in. It's been a year, and I havent received anything yet. Will I be able to legally recover my security deposit? By the way, Im in California.
