Tenant moved out, but owes rent
Tenants are responsible for paying rent through the lease period. Generally, if a tenant moves out of the property before the end of the lease, the tenant still owes rent for the remainder of the lease period. Landlords can deduct unpaid rent from the security deposit pursuant to MN Statute § 504B.178 or can sue the tenant for the amount of the unpaid rent in Conciliation Court (less than $15,000) or District Court (over $15,000).
