Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Good day. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you today.
Did you release them in writing from the lease?
Thank you for the additional information.
Your tenants remain liable to you for the difference between the rent you are collecting and the rent they promised to pay.
In other words, they are liable for rent until the lease expires but they are credited for any partial rent which mitigates your damages.
Additionally, they are, of course, liable for damages to the premises which exceed reasonable wear and tear.
You can sue for any damages in excess of the security deposit.
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
