Hi, I'm a relatively new landlord and ran into a lease break situation with my first tenant, although it's their second year.

My question is: Can the cost of re-renting (Realtor fee - $2300) be charged to the tenant? I understand that any loss of rent can be charged to the tenant, but I couldn't find sufficient info on the other costs.


Thanks in advance.

If they are under lease, any expense you suffer to re-rent the property (to fulfill the rent you would have received during their lease period, is a deductible expense.  So a leasing fee, advertising, incentives, etc are all deductible.  If they have converted to a month to month agreement following the expiration of their original lease, they are only responsible for the notice period for your state.
