Legal Question

Asked on: 10/13/12, 10:47 pm

I am renting a bedroom in a house. The owner lives in it too. We signed a one year lease. I need to move out after 2 months because of personal reasons. They are requiring me to continue paying rent until the lease is up. They refuse to look for a new tenant nor do they allow me to look for a new tenant. Can they legally force me to keep paying rent and not look for new tenant ?
