Hi, We just found out the apartment we are supposed to move into tomorrow (we cancelled the movers) has been subject to all sorts of health problems and the landlord is one of the top ten slumlords in NY. Most of the tenants are moving out and we were warned not to move. The infractions (health and otherwise) against the landlord are so great, we are not planning to move in. Our question: Can we break the lease now, it has only been 4 days since we signed? And, should/can we go after the broker? She knew about the problems and didn't tell us. We read a clause in the lease stating that the tenant agrees the to take the apartment upon inspection, unless there are things that could not have been visible at that time. What is our best recourse? I suspect the landlord would sue because he seems to need the money. Please help!
