If I break a lease, for what amount can I be sued?

If you break a lease, your landlord may seek the loss of rent to the end of the lease term minus any amount received when the property is re-let (leased to another party). The landlord also can seek recovery for any damages to the property above ordinary wear and tear. Lastly, the landlord may be entitled to attorneys’ fees, court costs, and late fees.
