Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. From a legal standpoint, if you broke the lease early and vacated, you could be responsible to pay the rent, until a new tenant is found. If you do not, then they would have to sue you and it would be at that time, you could contest and oppose them and raise as a defense, they failed to make a good faith effort to rent this and allow it to sit idle. They would need to show and support the efforts which they made to try and find a tenant and would need to show where it was listed, who it was listed with and anything else they did to try and find someone, to mitigate damages.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
