Welcome to Just Answer! My name is***** give me a few minutes to review your inquiry. Thank you for your patience.
It appears to me that under these facts you have a fairly strong argument that the LL breached your covenant of quiet enjoyment. You can sue or threaten to sue for this even after vacating the property. There is the possibility of a $2,000 fine and recovery of your moving expenses and the balance of the Jan 2017 rent as of the date of the constructive eviction.

I would suggest consulting with a local LL-Tenant attorney since there is the possibility that the LL may have to pay for your legal fees if the constructive eviction is successfully proven by you.
