You can read the lease, but typically there's not a provision to break it.
Go talk to the manager and see what can be done.
Sometimes you can pay a couple of months and loose your deposit.
Sometimes you can try to get a replacement tenant.

These days they may have someone who wants to rent your apartment for more money.

The more time you can give the manager typically the better it will be for you.

You want to do everything you can to make sure there is no negative information associated with your lease.. or it could be difficult to lease again in the future.

This could definitely take a hit to your credit score. They often put collection accounts on there, and that looks bad to mortgage lenders or other landlords.

Hi Krystal
Breaking a lease is serious business. You need to read your lease carefully to find out what penalties you may face as a result of breaking this lease. Is there a reason you are wanting to break the lease?
