Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

Yes, you can terminate your lease. As a tenant, you have the right to the safe, healthy, peaceful and quiet enjoyment of your rented premises. You are clearly not being afforded such enjoyment of your premises….and therefore the landlord is in default under your lease. You should send the landlord a certified, return receipt requested letter notifying the landlord that you are terminating your lease due to this default effective as of a specified date. You want to demand that your security deposit be refunded in full and that you will be making a determination and providing notification shortly of any damages you have suffered as a result of the default.
