Can I still be sued for rent if the landlord already found new tenants?
If a tenant unjustifiably removes from the premises prior to the effective
date for termination of the tenant's tenancy and defaults in payment of rent,
the landlord can recover rent and damages except amounts which the
landlord could mitigate. In any claim against a tenant for rent and damages,
the amount of recovery is reduced by the net rent obtained by reasonable
efforts to re-rent the premises.
