Welcome to Just Answer, I am a practicing solicitor in England and Wales and I will be dealing with your case today.

Sorry to hear about this.
A fixed-term tenancy can be terminated by giving valid notice if provided if the tenancy,
by exercising Break clause
or on the expiry of the fixed term tenancy.
Or by surrender of the tenancy in favour of a new tenant , if mutually agreed with the Landlord.
Tenant remains liable for all rent payments till the expiry of the tenancy or till the new tenant takes over the tenancy , in surrender of tenancy.
If the landlord is ignoring the repairs , then you can make a complaint to the Environmental health department of your local council, they can issue improvement notice to the Landlord for carrying out the required repairs and can also issue fines to the Landlord.
My pleasure, many thanks.
