We were still a month old and wanted to leave early because our apartment was so horrible that it became a burden on our mental health.

In the case of a fixed-term lease in which a tenant is required to stay for a fixed period (usually one year) and pay rent, both the tenant and the lessor must wait until the end of the agreed period before terminating the lease agreement.
