A: If you come to an agreement with your landlord to terminate the lease early, that would be the least difficult way to resolve the situation. OR, you might condition your "offer" on any house that might "fall" on you that the closing and occupancy will be timed to coincide with your lease termination. If you can't resolve the matter by yourself with your landlord, bring the lease to your meeting with your local attorney that does real estate law and review it with them to discuss options and strategy.
