Can you get out of a lease if you have to relocate to a different city?

It all depends on the contract. See your contract, some land lords will allow ou to cancel your lease if you are moving 40 miles away but they will still need 1-2 months notice. It's better to check with your landlord. Moving to a different city is not grounds for "getting out" of a lease. You are under contract to pay rent for the entire term of the lease. Perhaps you could sub-let the apartment in the interim. If sub-letting is prohibited by you lease, perhaps you could negotiate a deal to terminate the contract. Perhaps you could make the landlord a cash offer to terminate. Money talks.
