How to break a lease due to the unit being sold?
Question Details: I have 4-5 months left on a lease. They have been already 12 showings in the past 6 weeks. It has been very inconvenient and annoying. I want a full return on my deposit,no charge for cleaning fee as I have been cleaning more than usual, no charge for damages and an early termination of the lease, so I can move to a new place sooner than later.

You can't break a lease because the unit is being shown or because the landlord is showing it on average twice per week. The law recognizes a landlord's right to sell, and therefore to market/show, his real estate, and would not consider two weekly showings as a sufficient violation of your right to "quiet enjoyment" as to allow you to terminate your lease early. If you break your lease, you will be liable for the remaining rent due under it until the earlier of 1) the space either re-renting or being sold; or 2) the end of your lease term.
