What are the repercussions of breaking a lease early? Posted on June 09, 2011

We are in a 1 year lease that expires on October 31. We found a house that we want to buy that is cheaper than our rent. We are wanting to move into this new house by July 1st. Our lease says there is a 1 year term, but it does not say anywhere on the lease that if we were to leave early we would have to pay X amount of money to leave. Does this mean that we can break our lease without paying anything?
