what are the tenant right if he break lease early due to LL false promises of repairing & maintenance ?
You don't get to break a lease because a landlord will not repair or maintain the property you're leasing; what you can do however, is notify your landlord that you need repairs and if they don't do it in a timely manner, you can have it done yourself and take it out of the rent you owe--of course all this notification must be in writing and kept along with receipts and such things.

100% wrong!!! If the repair is a major one, like the heat or AC isn't working, or there is a leak in the roof or plumbing, or there is an infestation of vermin which makes the property uninhabitable and it is not rectified in a timely manner then the landlord has already broken the lease. There is a "warranty of habitability" attached to every lease, which guarantees the tenant a safe place to live. The landlord MUST make repairs in a timely manner.
Do not listen to the bad advice above. There is no need for you to pay for repairs out of your own pocket for any reason. You are entitled, by law, to a safe secure place to live. If your landlord fails to deliver he has broken the lease himself.
Here are some legal terms to look up.
1. Warranty of Habitabilty
2. Quiet enjoyment
3. Constructive eviction.
Good advice is not given by anonymous donors IN GENERAL--and IN GENERAL most landlords are responsible for keeping a property habitable; there are exceptions to every case.
The question wasn't about "most landlords". The question was about landlords who do not make repairs. And if a landlord doesn't make timely repairs he has broken his own lease. No tenant is ever required to live in an unsafe environment and no tenant should ever have to pay for repairs.
And just because you sign your name it doesn't make your erroneous advice correct.
Don't backpedal---it makes you seem even more an ass than you already appear to be. A lot of people live in unsafe environments and have always done so; if your claim had any substance whatsoever, no one would ever live in such conditions. Now, considering your bogus claims, can you explain how so many US citizens end up living without decent housing if everyone enjoys such protections?? I'll be waiting for an answer.
Because millions of people out there, including yourself, are completely ignorant about the law. Do you even know what a Warranty of Habitability is? Do you know what the term "quiet enjoyment" means? I'll give you a hint. It has nothing to do with noise. Do you know what a "constructive eviction" is? I don't know this stuff because I'm a lawyer or a tenant. I know this stuff because I'm a landlord and my family has owned apartments since the 1950's. Do yourself a favor and look up the three terms I mentioned above and EDUCATE yourself so you won't give anyone else bogus advice.
I'll even be nice and help you. Here is the legal definition of WARRANTY OF HABITABILITY :
An implied warranty of habitability, generally, is a warranty implied by law that by leasing or buying a residential property, the lessor or seller is promising that the property is suitable to be lived in. The warrant of habitability can be breached if there is no heat, hot water, or other essential services. Also, safety issues like no smoke alarm or other fire code issues can be considered to make a dwelling uninhabitable. Also, if the municipality has not issued a certificate of occupancy, it is not legal and is thus uninhabitable. The breach of the implied warrant of habitability can be used to legally break a lease. If the factors have been created or are controllable by the landlord and he or she has not fixed them despite ample written notification, this situation can also be considered constructive eviction, which allows the tenant to break the lease, but also may allow the tenant to sue for damages in some jurisdictions.
There you have it. You are wrong. Now go away. I'm sick of blowhards who think they know everything when they really know NOTHING!!!!!
