Only if it's written in your contract. Suggest you call the landlord and talk to him about moving out. See if he'll let you go.

Can a landlord break lease do to short sale?

Landlords give all sorts of crazy reasons for wanting to break leases. This is one of the strangest I have ever heard. A lease is a legal contract. It may contain a clause describing how the landlord can break it. The landlord may have sold the building for a whole lot of money. If he can get you out without having to pay you to break the lease then he gets to keep more money. His short sale does not involve you. He has a different motive. His short sale does not give him the right to break a lease. Your problem is your lease with him.
