Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If you hate the unit, then you could file suit against the landlord if they won't move you to a different unit. Your grounds would be breach of contract, fraud and misrepresentation because they showed you a normal unit, which was acceptable, and then they pulled a switcheroo and gave you something substantially different.
If you were to threaten to sue them, they likely will just move you rather than get sued and have to go to court to defend by paying an attorney to do so.
As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
