Tenant A has failed to pay rent and has violated other lease obligations. What actions can Landlord A take against the tenant?
Generally, Landlord A has the right to sue for back rent and for damages due to the breach of the lease. Landlord A may also terminate the lease and recover possession of the property. In some jurisdictions, Landlord A may recover the amount equal to the difference between the rent owed in the lease for the unexpired term and the reasonable rental value of the premises for that period.
