I broke a lease 4 years ago because the business wasn't

Customer Question

I broke a lease 4 years ago because the business wasn't working. After that I repaid back partially , approx. half, of the 27k left on the lease I signed. Now I got a judgment for the difference.... But I saw online that if they found a tenant who paid the same or more in that suite, I should be off the hook, and they did have it in there shortly after I left.... Can I do something??

Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Were you served? Do you have grounds to vacate the judgment?
