Customer Question

I signed a one year lease for an apartment in the state of Washington only to find out it has a roach insect infestation problem. I have paid the deposit of $500 but have not paid the first months rent nor have I moved in yet. Can I legally break the lease? I understand I may not get my deposit back?
