Here is my best explanation:

'leave' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'house and topple over' is the wordplay.
'house' becomes 'ho' (abbreviation for house).
'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'topple' becomes 'tip'.
'over' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'tip' backwards is 'pit'.
'ho'+'pit'='HOP IT'
