Does A Tenant Have The Opportunity To Fix Damages Before Deductions From The Security Deposit Can Be Made?

California Civil Code Section 1950.5(f) allows a tenant to request an inspection from their landlord prior to vacating the premises. At this inspection the landlord shall provide a list to the tenant of all damages which the landlord will deduct from the security deposit. In the time between the initial inspection and the move out date the tenant has the opportunity to fix those damages.
