You really have to read your lease; some leases allow for sub-leasing like mine did when I resided in a rent stab apt. If it allows it, you're home free. You would be able to sublease thru the end of lease term and LL will not be able to prohibit you from exercising this right. If it prohibits subleasing, then you know the answer. My lease also indicated a 60 day notice for early termination. Does yours? Whatever # of days it states, send it via certified letter as proof of you having given him notice. If it doesnt allow for early termination, then you are utimately responsible to continue paying rent or he can probably sue you for monies. You can probably answer all of your own questions, by reading your lease. Most people dont read their leases before or after they sign them which is a huge mistake. You ultimately may not need any favors from him if yours is a standard lease which already outlines all this issues.
