    An apartment lease can be broken by anyone but there are severe legal implications. Buying a home does not afford you any protection against these implications. You may be held responsible for damages including payment for all monies due to the end of the lease, although the landlord does have the responsibility to try to mitigage damages.

    I would strongly suggest that you either try to schedule your closing towards the end of your lease or try to work out some arrangements with your landlord.
