There’s a huge misconception about whether or not you can break your lease due to some change of your life status or else. There’s usually no such excuse for breaking your lease, unless of course, you and the leasing office agreed to some special provision when the lease was signed, you’ll still be fully responsible for any and all charges noted in your lease, if you move out earlier due to home purchase.

This can get quite nasty for you, as your landlord can add additional charges that you were not aware of when you signed the lease.
