    Security deposit. I rented an apartment in Cerritos for 3 years. I had to move for a job in NYC. It's been 2 months and my old landlord hasn't given me my Security deposit. back. I have left several messages on his machine. What should I do? I really need that money. NYC is very expensive and my rent is double and my apartment is much smaller.

      You send a certified mail about your security deposit and upon his/her receipt of the certified letter, give another week. If he/she hasn't responded again, file a small claims with the superior court.
