If a tenant breaks a lease the landlord is required to make a good faith effort to re-rent the property.  The courts typically interpret this as listing the property with the same terms offered, including the same rent, for the balance of the lease term.  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.
