That depends on a number of things, especially what it is that makes you say the landlord has not upheld his end of the agreement.  Sometimes, if it's bad enough, problems with an apartment can justify moving out early.  But I'd really recommend that you talk to a lawyer, who can go through the detailed facts of your situation, for advice you can rely on, before you do anything more.
