Hello. I am going to be assisting you with your question today.
Please note: This is general information and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
Yes. You will be able to break the lease as this is what is known as a constructive eviction (especially if you have complained to the property management company/owner and they have done nothing to fix it). The only issue I see that hurts your case is that you actually moved into the unit despite it's condition. You should have tried to break the lease once you saw the condition the unit was in and not have moved in.
You will not be able to recover anxiety and mental anguish. However, any money spent on the move, rent, etc. would be recoverable.
I hope I have answered your questions. If I have not, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions you may have. Also, please do not forget to rate my response at your earliest convenience.
