Patrick, It would probably be best to talk to the landlord to see if you may get out early or be able to sublet it for the remainder of the lease. Thanks Ray

One thing I also recommend is viewing your credit report prior to January. Any credit blemish that can be taken care of prior to a mortgage application can be very advantageous for you. Pricing on your loan can change by .50% with the smallest of blemishes. If you would like to do a prequalification or go through your credit report, please call or email me.

I agree - read thru your lease and speak w/your landlord. Maybe you can sub-let it, or find someone to rent the apartment.

If you have a private landlord, you may try to find a new tenant for them to fill the vacancy. Otherwise, Gail is right on advising you to consult your lease.

Have you read your lease? Or perhaps have an attorney look at it? Also, your landlord may be willing to let you out of your lease.
