How do I break a lease in Kentucky?

My husband, my son and I moved into an apartment complex out of necessity. I lost my job and we in turn lost our house. When we moved here it seemed ok, but lately it's gotten bad.

When we moved here it seemed ok, but lately it's gotten bad. Police are here all the time. Management is letting ANYONE move in. Management is extremely unprofessional (and that is putting it lightly). People are getting jumped by other residents guest for no reason other than them being a**ho**s.

I honestly can't live here anymore.
Update: thanks for the advice...but I can't afford a lawyer...I have even thought about just not paying the rent and waiting for the "Notice to Evacuate the Property Notice" They giver those out like candy here....

What basically happened is corporate changed the management bonus to be based on occupancy....thus allowing her to move whatever trash she wants... Seems like there should be something on our side. I mean if she rented... show more Does it not matter that the complex is in a nice area and changed to THIS AFTER we moved in?

Seems like there should be something on our side. I mean if she rented to us on the premis that we would be good tenants and abide by the rules shouldn't she also have to maintain the same environment as when we rented the place?
