I need to understand on what grounds can the lessor sue me ? We had a lease agreement in place but had to move to a new place , now we understand that there was a contract in place but we gave the lessor 2 months notice and he then said we must either get someone to take over the lease agreement or we must pay the outstanding rent to him till March 2019 when lease would have ended. We then immediately got a new tenant for him and he agreed to that. We moved out to the new place and now i hear from the new tenant that he is looking to sue us , for what i dont know so i need to understand what can he sue us on ? I mean we did everything he asked?
