Landlord’s remedies for tenant’s breach of duty: if tenant fails to pay rent, landlord can sue both for damages and to throw tenant off
property; if tenant unjustifiably abandons the leasehold, landlord may treat abandonment as an offer of surrender and accept by retaking
the premises or landlord may re-rent the premises on tenant’s behalf and hold tenant liable for any deficiency; majority rule is that
landlord must at least try to re-rent premises as a mitigation principle; landlord must not use self-help
