What are a tenant's rights if they break their lease early?
My tenant has exercised his option to his break lease. Under its terms, he forfeits the last months rent and security deposit. Now he informs me that, if I rent the condo in less than 2 months he is entitled to a percentage of his money returned (based on number of days, etc). State law says you can't double rent. I feel that I am potentially being penalized for his decision. He broke the lease under agreed terms and that is it. Correct? An additional burden has been placed on me now due to changing plans, time to advertise, etc. I would think that since he broke the lease, the forfeiture clause is invoked and we are done.
