I can speak from personal experience. I had a three (3) year lease, I served two (2) until the market tanked. I vacated with notice under good relationship with the leasing company. I had a judgment levied against me, and they looked at all my assets, including bank accounts, wages, etc. for garnishment. I have to live with this broken lease over my head to the tune of $25K, plus the harassments from attorneys, collection agencies, etc. I made a mistake of personally guaranteeing the lease. My advise is find a someone to sublease.
