The actions that your landlord can take are based on the lease you signed. Without reviewing your lease, I cannot tell you exactly what your landlord is entitled to. However, the lease that I have seen most frequently has an early termination clause requiring the tenant to pay the landlord 2 months additional rent and allowing the landlord to keep any security deposit. If your lease is similar, and you can not or have not paid your landlord this amount, he can sue you.
