Sorry, you signed a lease for a set timeframe, you have to abide by your agreement. The fact that you are buying real estate yourself and now feel inconvenienced does not mean you can break previous agreements.

Of course you are free to leave anytime you wish - maybe if you give the landlord notice, leave the place spic & span and let him show it while you're there, he'll let you off the hook. JUST ASK.

: Is it a law that a landlord of an apartment complex has to let you go early from your lease if you are closing on a house before the lease term is up?

: We are planing on buying a house, but the closing date might be a month early. That landlord said we could only sub-lease, not get out early. This is effecting the seller's desicion to let us buy the house!!! They wont let us bid for a month!

: Is there a law that helps us? We live in western NY. (Rochester)
