If you have signed a lease for next year and it has not started yet will you be held accountable if you break it to purchase a new home?

It really depends on your lease, though in general there is some sort of forfeiture. Consult your lease -- usually these things are spelled out.

If not, ask an attorney about the laws in your particular state.
