Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
No since he , tenant broke the lease here, you are within your rights to keep the rent.The tenant since he is reach would not have legal recourse.You are allowed here to keep the rent paid for the 5 months left on the lease.This is really standard in such a situation. I see no problem with you doing so as the tenant was in breach of the lease/contract.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
Please let me know if you have more follow up.
