WVC 37 - 6 - 7
§37-6-7. Reletting by landlord.
The landlord, or other person entitled to the rent may,
however, at his election, incorporate, in the notice provided for
in the preceding section, the further notice that he will, after
he shall have taken possession of the demised premises, lease the
premises to some other person, in which case the tenant will
still remain liable upon his lease, for the unexpired portion of
his term, for the difference between the amount of rent received
by the landlord from the new tenant, and the amount payable under
the lease of the original tenant, and upon any other covenants or
agreements contained in the original lease.
