Hate to say it, but you seem "stuck". They are never going to give you your security deposit back. So the best you can do is "live out" your security deposit, and then move or have them sue you for non payment. This is quite risky, as it can affect your credit rating...
Depending on your state, they most likely are responsible for fixing the window and any other violations. So call in an Inspector and start raising a fuss...
Oh, maybe try calling your local "Tenant Rights" group and see if they can offer you any help...
Best of luck!

: Renting a town house. The realtors will not fix a broken lock on a window. They only fix the bear minimum. I've asked to get out of the lease since I can't afford it and the place is in bad shape. They denied me the first time and now I still want to get out five months into the lease. Would it be wise to assign the property since it was left silent on the lease? What would happen to my security deposit if I broke the lease 6 months into it? Would I lose it all probably? It feels like I made my own expensive prison sentence. I'll never get out of this place and the realtors have given me nightmares and made my life pretty awful. They have been dishonest, cheap, and downright unproffesional. The Better Business Beurau should be contacting but they will probably sue me for everthing as that's their evil nature. I'll never get out of this prison sentence. Please, can someone give me advice besides the usually fix everything yourself you lousy tenant.
