Answer

If you do not give proper notice and do not take any other steps to end your tenancy, your tenancy might continue for a period of time after you move out. This means you could owe rent for that time.

In this situation, your landlord must try to find a new tenant. Once a new tenant rents the place, your tenancy will end and you will not be responsible for more rent.

If your landlord is not able to rent the place, there are rules that limit how much rent you will owe.
