It all depends on the landlord. If you are buying the house from your landlord, it wouldn't be an issue. If you are moving to another house and leaving the landlord to find another tenant, it may not be okay with him. Some landlords are cool about it and will let you out of the lease, others will make you pay and could take you to court (they would win). The best thing to do is ask if you can pay for advertising to find a new tenant and be as helpful as you can to get a new person to rent that place.

Can you break an apartment lease when buying a house in the state of Florida?

Breaking a lease is, breaking a lease regardless of reason. Buying a home has nothing to do with renting the one you are in now. And if you do break a lease, according to your lease terms, your landlord could sue you for loss of revenue during the time the rental home is vacant and up to the time your lease would normally expire. There are certain exceptions to the rule of breaking a lease, but buying a home is not one of them.
