    What state are you located in legalforums? Need more info, because different states have different laws regarding landlord-tenant issues. Some states make it very difficult to evict a renter, where other states lean toward making it more streamlined to evict a tenant. Depending on which state you're located in, there are different options available to you and your best option may be better determined by knowing where you're located.

    Also, have you spoken to your landlord regarding the situation?

    You can ask to the owner to break the contract according to your needs.
