    It depends on the lease. Read your lease. Some lease agreements allow a person to vacate before the agreement expires as long as 30 days notice is given. If it doesn't have this kind of term in the lease talk to the landlord and explain the situation. They're likely to work something out with you.

    Read your lease. Does it have a break clause, or early exit option?

    If not - you'll need to negotiate with your landlord. Expect to have to pay.

    You talk to the LL about what it will take.

    If your lease contains an early termination clause, pay the fees as outlined.

    Or, ask your landlord if you can sublet. If he agrees, find a suitable person. If he doesn't agree, ask how much it will cost you to terminate the lease early.

    ask a local lawyer. I am sure there must be an emergency clause in your contract.

    Ask the landlord about paying a feee to get out of the lease - this happens alot adn they will probably work with you, to some degree.  

    If they won't pay the fee, then either break the lease (they won't be able to collect if you are living in another state but your creedit may be ruined, at least for awhile) or keep paying the lease until it runs out.  Possibly you can even find someone to take over the lease for you, iwth the landlords approval.

    Unless you have a very understanding and generous landlord, there is no FREE way out. It will cost you something, whether there is a buyout clause in your lease (aka early termination fee) and you pay the buyout fee, or there isn't and you break the lease and are sued for whatever financial damage the landlord suffers.

    You might not  be able to without paying a penalty.  Have you looked at your state's landlord and tenant laws if they say that your company relocating you is grounds for early lease termination?

    The lease might say what you have to do - probably pay an extra month or two rent.
