Landlord did not fulfill his part of the agreement prior to move in date... can I end the lease and receive my deposit back?

I am suppose to move into a 2 family home on Friday. I just received the keys yesterday and visited the apartment to view the progress. I was surprised to find nothing had been started. Upon excepting the apartment I was told the carpets would be cleaned and the walls would be painted. Neither had been done!!! I now have a bad taste in my mouth with my future landlord and DO NOT WANT TO MOVE INNTO HIS PROPERTY. I never received a Condition Report stating he would take care of the carpets and painting! Am I stuck? Do I have to move into the apartment or lose my deposit? Would some one let me know as soon as possible.
