Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will answer your question.
Yes, if there is a written lease and no provision for early termination, the tenant remains liable for the payment of rent until the end of the lease term or until a new tenant leases the premises before the end of the lease term.
Of course, if the landlord is in default, the tenant may assert that as a defense.
Best regards.
