You can only sub lease if your lease allows it (which most don't). The laws very from state to state so check with your state's laws before doing anything.<br />
As a last resort you can just move out and don't put him on your references. Don't mention that you lived there when you fill out an application to lease elsewhere. Most landlords that have only one or two properties don't report renters credit.

Unless it's a clause in your agreement, the landlord isn't obligated to transfer the lease or refund your deposit or in any other way hold you not liable for the terms you agreed to. If he's as much of a douche as you describe, I think it'd be risky to renew the lease if you have other options available.

The lease terms will tell you if you are allowed to sublet the lease... but if you do, the original lease is with YOU.... so even if you find another tenant, if they default - you are still responsible, it would be your job to go after the new tenant for your own reimbursement.<br />

Most leases will let you out if you give enough notice - there may be a penalty of loss of deposit or maybe 2 months rent due after you leave, or something similar, but typically you won't have to pay in the full year.... again, read the terms.

You need to check the laws in your location. Where I live, if you sign for 12 months, you're liable for 12 months.
