    Not likely.  In the U.S., the law is 3 to 45 days after move out, depending on the state and about one month is most common.  You will have to learn the laws in the county where you live to find out how many days they have to return your deposit.

    It's not likely. In my state, they have 14 days to return your deposit.

    Is it possible?  Yes.  Is it legally required?  No.  As a result it doesn't typically happen.  And especially not offered in cash.

    Yes you 'can'.  It is unlikely you would.  A quick search tells me in the UK the landlord has 10 days.  If you have a good relationship with your landlord, then you can talk to them before and explain that you'd like to do a walk through and have them pay you the deposit on the spot if possible.  No harm in asking, but give a heads up so that if they're okay with it they have the money or checkbook on them.

    No, the landlord needs to go through the place and really look things over.

    Not in the U.S. Landlord has 21 to 45 days to mail deposit depending on your state AND he can deduct for repairs with a letter of explanation.
