My landlord won't take my money. How long can a landlord sit on rent checks?

Our landlord hasn't deposited our checks from the last 2 months, it's almost time to pay again. We're in Washington, 4 people are on the lease and we each pay $450 a month on seperate checks. So that'll be $1350 each floating around/waiting in our bank accounts. Is there a time restraint on how long he can sit on our money?
How long can anyone hold a check for that matter? Does a check ever expire or become invalid?
