My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
Long story short. When I moved into the room I'm currently renting a few months back, I paid a first month and last month payment. I did not pay a security deposit.
I've been paying the landlord/roommate a few days early every month. I paid him for May's rent on April 23, but a few days later, decided I'd be moving out. On the 26th I told gave him my 30+ day notice and said I'd be out by May 31.
I asked him to return the check that I gave him on the 23 but he already cashed it. I then asked him to write me a check back being that he should keep my last month's rent check in an escrow type account when I first gave it to him a few months back.
How many days do I have to wait to get my money back?
