Can I break my lease if I was told by both the property manager and the landlord that the property was clean and in good condition but it's not?

Question Details: I moved into a rental from out of state. There are electrical and plumbing issues and the house is in poor condition. I've only lived here 2 weeks and I told the landlord of my concerns 1 week after moving in. The landlord said she's willing to break the lease if she can find another renter and if I can guarantee that the new person will be a long-term renter and will pay their rent on time. Is that legal?
