Good day

I have a rental agreement till end of September.  My mother was a lessee aswell.  She became very ill and is currently in ICU.  We gave notice as there is many steps and she will be in a wheelchair in future.  The landlord wants me to find someone to take over the lease but i am struggling and she does not want to work through an angency.  They also added and scraped things out on contract with only landlord's initail.  What are my rights and can she hold me liable for costs
