    Answered . I agree with my colleague. Your tenants may be liable for the rent due and owing until the expiration of the lease (unless your state requires you to take reasonable efforts to re-rent the property). Your tenants also may be in breach of the lease by allowing their adult children to remain on the property. Look to your lease to determine what each party's obligations are. And in your case, it would be worth it to consult a local attorney.
