Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Honestly, the landlord only has to try and rent it for the remaining term of your tenancy so as to be acting in good faith in trying to re-rent so as to be able to hold you liable for any lost rent. They aren't under any obligation to rent it for a longer period of time, although that would definitely make sense unless it is in a college area and they wanted to stick to a set yearly schedule.. And they aren't under any obligation at all to try to sell the property and take it off the market entirely.
But the landlord doesn't have to do anything at all until a tenant actually breaches the lease and vacates. So if you are still there and haven't surrendered possession yet, then they don't have a legal obligation to do anything at this point from the perspective of advertising. Their duty only kicks in once you have breached the lease and they begin to incur damages. So if you are still there and the landlord is actually advertising it, he is legally doing more than he has to at this point...
