Breaking the lease might break the bank!

That if a tenant breaks a lease the landlord is required to make a good faith effort to re-rent the property? The courts usually interpret requirement as meaning that the property must be marketed for rent for the same terms – such as rent and deposits – as the vacating tenant had. If the landlord decides to sell the property instead of renting it again, s/he has not complied with this requirement and probably cannot charge the tenant for lost rent.
