getting out of apt. lease

My apartment lease doesn't end until January. I have no security deposit down. Is there any way to get out of the lease? I simply don't like it here and would like to get out. What would happen to my credit if I just up and left?

Did you sign a contract? They could hold you accountable to the remainder of the lease payments and place you in to collection. This is about the worst thing that can hit your credit other than a bk.

Contact your landlord, they will usually work with you to break the lease but it will cost you something.

Just talk to the landlord and see what they say. I just broke my lease last month. I told her I had a new job and I had to move. I stressed how I was going to do it no matter what she said. Either way I was moving.

I paid two months of rent and moved out. She was pretty cool about it and she owns 40+ condos so this is her business not a ma and pop thing.
