Hi. Since you've been gracious enough to have had 5 Open Houses to show the place, you should be on good terms with the LL. Therefore, I'd simply speak with the LL directly, and tell them that you've found a place and need to move now. It seems like you have a good working relationship. Also, you could speak with the new buyers. They may want earlier access, and could either speak to the current LL too, on your behalf, or "buy out" your remaining time. Also, since you probably gave a security deposit to the LL (one month's rent??) why not just NOT PAY September rent, and tell the LL to use the security to cover the last month of the lease? That may be the simplest way of all.

: : we have a one year lease until the end of october '01. the landlord has informed us about 4 weeks ago that he wants to sell the place. we had 5 open houses so he could get a good price.
: : now we stumbeled across a new place and would like to get out of the lease two month early.
: : is there a way to do so without paying for the remaining months?
: : what would be the righ way to break the lease?
