Can I break my 1 year apartment lease for misrepresentation and distortion of facts?

I moved in my apartment about 8 months ago. I was told heat was included in my rent. I checked the apartment and it was nice. I was told there are 2 pools, as well as a fitness room and party room, all which require a keyfob. I was told the keyfob will be given to me once the system was repaired. Weeks went by and I still dont have a keyfob. I asked for the key and now I’m being told it costs $50, I was told it was free. I asked where is my thermostat and was told I do not have controlled heat. No one told me this information. I would not have moved in knowing these things.
