Fees for terminating lease prior to experation

The last two tenants we have had have terminated their lease prior to expiration. Does anyone know whether it is legal in California to charge early termination fees to obtain a new tenant.

I would charge a tenant a full months rent for breaking the lease but I am not sure if there is an exact set amount to charge.
What is the exact language of your lease?  They generally have to pay until the lease ends or until you find a new tenant,  and you have a responsibility to find a new tenant and not just collect from the first one.  You also cannot collect from both.
