    If you want out of the lease without penalty, either the landlord will have to voluntarily agree, or you will have to go to court and prove your case to a judge or have some other authority such as the health department intervene.

    Never play phone tag. Put everything in writing or it never happened.

If they are actively working on maintenance/repair then they are doing what they should, if not you contact the health department who will come and review and check if it is a H&S issue and they will give the landlord notice to do the work which they will come back and check

    They can fix it or they can move you or they can let you out of the lease.
