Ideally, you would have given her the 60 days notice that the calls for. There is a possibility that you have agreed to another one year lease; however, that provision might just require a 60 days notice at any time during the lease. I haven't read the clause so that is not certain. If you can prove that the maintenance issues made the property uninhabitable, that would be grounds for you to cancel the lease at any time. But that is not easy to prove in court and often requires an expert testimony if the repair issues are marginal. I can't give you any guarantee that if you choose to move out on April 30 that the landlord can't sue you for breach of the lease. But the landlord will have to try to re-rent the property in order to mitigate any damages she may have sustained. I hope that this answer is helpful and that you will give it a positive rating at this time.
