Landlord can legally hold tenant liable until end of lease or finds new tenant. Often can negotiate a one month termination fee. Another option is for you to sublet for balance of lease so landlord has no loss.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
