Default Landlord is advertising apartment for rent

Our landlord is advertising our apartment available for rent for February when we have a signed lease through August.
What does this mean? Does this give us grounds to terminate the lease? Is he terminating the lease with us?
He has not said anything to us about it.

How do you know it is your apt. he is advertising/referring to?

What does this mean?

Is he terminating the lease with us?
Did he state so? You want us to ass-u-me?

He has not said anything to us about it.
Did you call/write to him/her about it?

Certainly. Call the LL and ask. You may find out it isn't your apartment he is advertising, but another very close by.

It could be a mistake. A workman may have posted the sign at a wrong address. The wrong expiration date may have been deciphered (maybe the 8 looked like a 2 on his copy). Maybe he mistook your lease for someone else's with a similar name. (I had 3 tenants named "A. Miller" at the same time.)

The easy thing is to ask about this and get a straight answer. If it is a mistake, it is easily rectified. Since he didn't re-rent the unit yet, this is an easy fix, and no harm was done.
