Read your lease agreement but I can say that most likely he certainly can. He is letting you break your lease and not coming after you for the rest o the owed amount. If you break a lease with 6 months left you owe that amount. So he is letting you out in good faith but now he needs to prepare the property for another buyer ahead of time and that is causing him time and money even if he gets another buyer in the property right away. Letting you out of your lease is not refunding your security deposit.
Tough lesson and a bad situation but when you sign a lease it has to be followed and the landlord is still doing you a favor by letting you break your lease.
