I say be honest with them.  Who knows, they may be in hte same situation as you, where they’d like to leave (to buy a place, or just for a change) and are like “darn it, our lease isn’t up until August”.

It could be completely mutually beneficial.

This will vary hugely according to your location (many states and municipalities have local laws that govern landlor-tenant relationships) as well as the specifics of the lease that you have signed.  You could start by calling your local courthouse or going to your local library and seeing if they have copies of the relevant statutes.  Or you could just call a lawyer.  This is not a good question to trust advice from internet strangers on.

That said, if your tenants are in violation of their lease, you could try to *negotiate* an early move-out with them.  As in, let them know that they can have their security deposit back if they are willing to move out early, but otherwise you will be keeping it as per the terms of the lease.  It might be worth the money to them to find a new place.
