I kinda think it IS correct.
As one of the anons noted: "post marked w/in 21 days (or hand delivered not later than the 21st day)"
• Mail or personally deliver to you an itemized statement that lists the amounts of any deductions from your security deposit and the reasons for the deductions, together with a refund of any amounts not deducted."
So, the requirement is for the landlord to 'send', or 'mail or personally deliver'. And the time requirement for him to do this is 21 calendar days after you move. It does not address when you actually receive the material sent or mailed. If they 'personally deliver' the material of course it would have to be by the 21st day.
As for someone MAILING the rent, well, your point is flawed logic. if your lease or rental agreement is clear (use the LPA one), the rent is DUE on a specific date--not mailed by a specific date, but DUE on a specific date. People who mail their rent checks need to mail them enough ahead of time that the rent check will arrive on or before the due date.
