Legal Q&A: Tenant wants to leave 4 months into yearlong lease


Question: I have signed a lease for one year with a tenant, and now he wants to leave after four months. What is my recourse?

Answer: The tenant is responsible for the rent up to the date the lease expires or the date that you re-lease the property, whichever occurs first. You must use due diligence in trying to re-lease the premises.

Question: If a tenant does not give a 30-day notice of intent to vacate, can the full security deposit be kept by the landlord?
