I've just broken my lease with a few months left to run. Is the agent obligated to genuinely find a new tenant or do most just let the term run out and the old tenant pay the rent for the full term? If you're aware that the agent is dragging their heels, is there anything you can do about it? I understand that a lease is a lease and I'm bound to the terms, but it is one of the best rentals for the suburb so it should be snapped up by the first person that inspects. They've already rejected a friend of mine who applied prior to it being relisted.
