Dear PoPville – Apartment Flooded and Reeks – Grounds to Terminate Lease?

Photo by PoPville flickr user djdc in petworth

Dear PoPville,

Had a bad flood in my apartment. The sewer burst and backed up into my living room and kitchen. It’s a mess and my roommate and I don’t think we can live there anymore (the landlord has been cheap on any repairs and has already said he won’t replace the carpet. He’ll just clean it, but there’s no unsmelling this smell.). Is this grounds to terminate our lease? We really would like to just move April 1st or immediately to avoid paying rent for a sewage-filled apartment.
