You're going to have to man up on this money issue and take some financial responsibility or just be a louse and squeal to the building inspector.
This. If the reason you bought a house was because the old place was that bad, you did it out of order; you should have gotten an inspector in, and once he agreed that the place was that bad, you could have said the landlord broke the lease by not providing an acceptable living conditions. Or if he disagreed, you should have waited out your lease before buying a house. If you signed a lease agreement, a legal contract to lease the place, you have an obligation to pay the full amount of the lease.
