Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
In the absence of a provision in your lease to the contrary, you would be subject to damages for the early termination of your lease but not necessarily the full balance of the payments.
In Colorado, the landlord has a duty to mitigate his damages resulting from early termination of a lease. This means that the landlord must use reasonable efforts to relet the property. In the event he is not able to relet the property, you will remain liable for the total amount of the lease payments. In the event he is able to mitigate his damages and relet the property, you will be liable only for any shortfall between the new tenants lease and your lease.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
