If the premises, due to landlord's failure to maintain or repair, is rendered unhabitable, you can move out and declare the lease terminated. It is a gamble because if a court decides that the premises was habitable they will find ou liable for the rent and any other damages.
Without moving you can sue the landlord for breach of the lease for failure to maintain the premises as may be required under the lease. In the course of the litigation
, you may find the landlord amenable to letting you out of the lease.
Finally, the easiest way to get out is if you can find a subtenant or assignee to take over the lease for you.
Additionally, be aware that the landlord has a duty to mitigate damages if you breach. They have to make a reasonable effort to find a new tenant.
