Waiting for my deposit

I moved out of my flat many months ago and I've yet to get my deposit back.
The inspection went pretty well, all the official paperwork sorted, only a few minor things to sort out, the money for which was taken out of my final rent (I've got emails and bank records to prove this if they try anything, but it was only a few hundred so....).

The actual deposit however is taking forever to be released into my account.

I understand legally they're allowed to hold it for a year.

But...why would they do this? What could a regie be gaining out of sitting on this deposit? What tricks might they be playing?
Is it typical that they take so long to release the deposit?

What happens at the one year point? Is it still up to them manually to contact the bank and release it? Do I contact the bank with my papers from when i moved out to prove this situation?
