Before you do anything, speak to your HUD representative. I have heard that there are new laws governing Section 8, whereby, if you screw up, you will not be eligible again and they will provide no additional security deposit. That means you will need to get the security deposit from this place back. How much longer until your lease ends? If it is less than six months, you might be better off holding out and completing the term of your lease. If you were a person with a great deal of money, I would say that you could provide your notice to the landlord and have them find another tenant to take your place. You are responsible for rent and anything else required by your lease until the place is rerented. Sometimes, LL's charge a fee to re-lease (could be equal to a month's rent). You don't offer any really solid reasons other than you don't like your management and neighbors. If there were some problems that affect the habitability of your apartment, that were unsafe that you told management about and they did not correct, you could call your HUD worker and they would take care of that.
Just be careful how you proceed. Would hate for you to lose your Section 8 status.
