Hello,Terminating your lease early does not in itself affect your credit report. What could affect your credit is if the landlord sues you for breaking your lease and gets a civil judgment for damages against you.
These marks on your credit are not generally reported to credit bureaus directly. Instead, civil judgments are documented in publicly available court records, which credit bureaus may review and include on your credit report.
However, if you were able to reach an agreement with the landlord to be able to terminate your lease and avoid litigation, for example, then there would be no issue with anything going on your credit.
