From a purely legal perspective, the lease is a legally binding contract as soon as you sign it and it could be enforced by the landlord if you were to break it. But realistically, if you haven't paid anything or taken possession, it is kind of unlikely that the landlord would pursue you by suing you in court if you were to immediately notify them that you are breaking the lease for a good reason...like you can't come up with the money. A landlord would rather have you break a lease before you get in than get in and then have to evict you.
