What to do if our lease expired on the home we were renting but we never got our security deposit back?

Question Details: Our lease expired about 5 weeks ago. As of today, we have yet to get back all or part of our $2500 security deposit. I have contacted the property management company last week. They told me the homeowner was still documenting damages and would send us a list of damages. However, nothing has arrived in the mail. At this point, can she still deduct from the $2500 deposit if it is after the 30 days?
