Is there a 3-day right of rescission to terminate a lease that has been signed?

Question Details:

Are there any ways out of the lease due to a sudden change of occupation? The apartment will not be ready until the 02/12; we have not even received a signed copy of the lease yet. Also, no deposit has been payed. My friend has claimed he will pay any fees associated with backing out of the lease, but I'm not convinced that's even an option. I'm also concerned with how this will affect my credit. I know that the right of rescission applies to many goods and services, but I'm not sure on rental properties and do not want to make a fool of myself. Important Notice
