: no. your LL is being a jerk, probably in retaliation for breaking the lease. while you must honor the terms of your contract if your LL won't let you out, you still have every right to occupy that space while you are paying for it. it's a package deal, and it has its ups and downs, for both of you. but the LL certainly cannot bar access to a property you are paying for.

while that may be the legality, if you are still in the apartment, i wouldn't expect the landlord to make a whole-hearted attempt to rent the place to someone else. it's a lot tougher to rent out a place that's already occupied than an empty one. besides, if the landlord finds somebody to take your place, and then you can't move on time, then what? and, certainly the landlord will be painting, cleaning up, and fixing things, which he won't do while you're there.
