Tenancy Deposits

how long landlord can hold deposit after the tenant has moved out? In this case all the bills have been paid, but there's a possibility that there has been some damage. The problem is that landlord is away and is not able to visit the flat to estimage the cost until later date (2-3 months after the end of tenancy).
In other words is there a deadline after which the deposit has to be returned in full regardless whether has been any damage or not?
Many thanks for your advice!
