Hello, my name is ***** ***** I hope to assist with your question. Have you considered asking the agents to arrange for the place to be professionally cleaned and presenting the landlord with a bill for this, given that this was a condition of your moving in to the property? Presumably, if the place was cleaned to an acceptable standard you would be happy to remain there?
If you specified prior to moving in that the carpets/ curtains etc needed to be cleaned as in your opinion it was dirty, then if this is not the case you are entitled to ask for this to be done. Professional cleaning is not the same as hiring someone to run a hoover round! I don't think you could ask for the carpet to be replaced, but steam cleaning and curtain washing/ cleaning, in addition to a thorough clean to remove all of the dirt that you say you have photographed might suffice? I'm just trying to suggest that if you push for the problem to be resolved now, it might be more simple than having to find somewhere else to live and go through the dispute about ending the tenancy.
The difficulty is, that a dirty house is not necessarily unfit for habitation, it is something that can be rectified. And I think you have a strong case for getting this done at their cost, as you specifically asked for it to be done prior to moving in. But, if you are unable to accept this, you will have to try to negotiate a mutual agreement over ending the contract forthwith. Explaining that you are suffering and that if you have to continue to live in the property you may be forced to bring a claim for loss of enjoyment of your right to good health may assist.
Did you raise all of this prior to moving in, or not? You said you asked for a thorough clean, not intially for a new matress, couch, carpets etc.
OK, there could be grounds for you ending the agreement early, yes, particularly as you flagged all of this up at the first opportunity. Ideally I would need to see the tenancy agreement to be able to give clearer advice, but this would require a) you uploading the agreement and b) a premium service (document review), which would come at an extra cost I'm afraid.
However, for more general advice, take a look at this link: https://housingrights.org.uk/news/can-tenant-leave-property-tenancy-agreement-expires You would be looking to prove that the Landlord has not fulfilled their obligations to provide a property that is safe for you to live in, not a danger to your health and cleaned to an acceptable standard (though you should gice them the chance to rectify the issue and have the property cleaned, in this last instance).
