Lucas Wynne's answer To the contrary, it would likely be an anti-trust violation if you somehow prevented those buyers from participating freely in the real estate market or prohibiting them from contacting certain agents. There is a grave difference between an anti-trust violation and an unfair advantage.

Nicholas Nelson's answer Generally, after materially breaking the lease agreement, the tenant is responsible for the remainder of the lease per the terms of the agreement. However, a landlord generally has a duty to mitigate the damages to the tenant by making reasonable efforts to lease the property to another tenant.

Nicholas Nelson's answer If you do not vacate in 3 days, the landlord may bring an eviction (forcible detainer in legal speak) hearing. During such a hearing, each party will have the opportunity to argue their side. See North Dakota Century Code 47-32. Note that this is general legal information and should not be relied upon in your specific matter. An attorney cannot give adequate legal advice until meeting with the client and discussing all relevant facts related to the specific situation. I hope this helps!
