How can I get out of this terrible lease?

Question Details: Our landlord lives upstairs and has been getting continually worse. Here are some of the issues we've had: no power in half the house because it was wired wrong at the box, he had a drunk guy come fix it; often blasts music in the garage (shares a wall with our bedroom) until 4 am; has his chest freezer plugged into our circuit, insists it's fair because he pays for the shared washer/dryer; sprayed ether in the garage with interior door open, garage door closed and the fumes made us sick; told us wrong meter was ours, so when he didn't pay electric ours got cut off; his girlfriend came into our house without pants and peed outside our hall door and it took him 2 days a note to clean up the urine and panties.
