Once you sign the lease and take possession of the house it is your responsibility to fulfill your contract.

I would talk to the landlord and negotiate a way out. It may be as simple as finding someone to take over your current lease.

sorry jody....
you are stuck...there is never a grace period on a lease....it is not a "try it and see if you like it" deal.

read your contract...there might be an "out clause"...but i doubt it. an out clause is normally a financial penalty for backing out of the lease early.
what you might have to do is pay the landlord the entire 12 months of the lease (or what ever is left on it)....

i can tell you he is not going to be receptive to you breaking this lease just 10 days into it.

good luck.
