I am staying in an apartment where I want out of my lease.

Customer Question

I am staying in an apartment where I want out of my lease. I signed a 6 month lease and when I went to renew I was told they were renovating and I would have to move to another apartment with upgrades and pay 200 dollars more a month. My daughter was already in school so we hired movers and now that I am here the apartment had mold for 6 weeks and I got the run around until I cleaned it myself bc I have a baby. All the upgrades are cheap and break off. I've had to show receipts that I've paid rent bc they try to keep my money and say I don't pay. I signed a 9 month and I want to move out at 6. They told me no. Is there anything I can do?
