    Simple - go to your landlord/rental office and give them 30-days notice. You'll have to pay a penalty of whatever you agreed to when you signed the lease but hey, at least it will be broken

    Leases are legally binding for the full term of the lease.

    You buying a property has no bearing on the lease (unless specifically stated within it).

    Why would a landlord let you out of a lease because you bought a house? There's nothing in it for the landlord, who is left with an empty apartment and no rent. Look at your lease agreement- it will tell you what the penalties are for breaking the lease.

    Someone not bright enough to post this to the appropriate section, Renting & Real Estate in the Business section, is clearly not bright enough to deal with a lease, never mind a house purchase.

    A lease is a legal contract. The ONLY way that buying a house could get one out of the lease would be if such a specific clause were a part of the lease agreement in the first place, and I have never heard of any such clause.

    Three words: Read. The. Contract.

    You can always break your lease. The problem is you have to pay the penalty for doing so. You get no pass just because you buy a house. Here's a novel idea - time your house purchase with the end of your lease.

    Buying a house has nothing to do with it.  You can't get out of your lease unless you can make a deal with your landlord, but it's usually not in their interest to cut you a deal.

    Buying a house has nothing to do with an existing lease.

    In practice, most apartment owners will only hold you responsible for the time the unit is unrented. But as Pearl said, you can always pay off your apartment lease in advance. For example, let's say your least ends in December and you pay 800 dollars a month rent. Just pay 2,400 cash to get out of it.

    You can't break a lease without paying it off.
