Hello,

I need legal clarification on the law relating to renting flats.

I rented my flat in the UK through a letting agency because I was living in another country. The only visits I made were virtual visits via Whatsapp.

However, when I visited the flat for the first time, it was much more different from what was shown in the photos or in the inventory.

For instance, the flat is leaning, the window panes are broken, there is a broken mirror that cannot be removed, the walls are dirty, the walls are cracked, there is no sound or heat insulation to the point where I can't keep food in my house because it gets moldy.

My contract states that I can only leave the flat 6 months after the start of the contract.

I was wondering if there is anything I can do to leave my appartment before the end of the 6 months ?
