The new law permits landlords and tenants to agree to the use of emails for some notices and agreements regarding security deposits. Most important, the new law includes the Notice of Right to Inspection Prior to Termination of Tenancy. The security deposit law itself, found in Civil Code § 1950.5, still requires that the itemization of the security deposit and notice to the tenant of its disposition must still be made be either personal delivery or regular mail. See Civil Code §1633.3.
