If you notify a landlord 60+ days in advance, can you break a lease?

Posted by PW on October 07, 2001 at 20:41:54:

Our landlord refuses to give us a 9 month lease and we know we need to move out in 9 months. My understanding is that we would be liable for the remaining 3 months rent to finish out our lease until the apartment was re-letted. However, we were told that most states have laws that basically say if you give sufficient notice (say 60-90 days) you could escape this clause. Is that true? Where could I go to find out?
