Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Did you have a lease agreement that was still valid?
yes the question is do they have to find a renter and if so does the law protect me if they whant to do nothing until october that is when my lease expire. i have payed my rent on time for the last 28 month and im still paying it on time. but i have little faith regarding the new property manager.
Yes, the landlord has an obligation to mitigate damages. They can not just let the property sit idle and need to make a good faith effort to mind a tenant to move in. Moreover, you can also try and find someone to take over the remainder of the the lease. If they fail to do so and act in bad faith, it could be a mitigating factor if they seek damages, to reduce them.
