We broke our 1 year lease on a rental property before moving in. Our contract says we are responsible for rent for the full year. We thought Washington law stated that we are only responsible for rent until the landlord re-rents the unit, as long as the landlord is advertising adequately, and any advertising costs. Is this true? If so, is simply a sign in the yard considered "adequate" advertising? Also, are we entitled to our full security deposit back after the property is re-rented?We did do the walk through checklist. The conditions of the property were good. Our situation changed, so less than a week after doing the walk through we told the landlord we would not be moving in and asked LL to rent it to someone else. We want to pay our fair share, but are concerned because LL won't advertise in any way other than a sign in the yard. We think it would be rented by now if LL would advertise on Craigslist. We still have keys and nothing in writing, just texting and phone conversations.
