Thank you for your response. What happens if the landlord goes over the 21 days and gives me an itemized list later? Am I entitled to my full deposit? He keeps procrastinating and the deposit is being held by the landlord.

According to the California Supreme Court decision in the case of Granberry v. Islay Investments (1995) 9 Cal.4th 738, 745, after the 21 days have transpired, the landlord loses the right to keep any of the security deposit and must return the entire deposit to the tenant.
