Landlord failed to get co in time

I signed a lease two weeks ago that was to begin on jan 1 2006, landlord was supposed to get co. Electricity was not turned on at time the inspector arrived so landlord cancelled inspection. Electricity was turned on within two hours but landlord did not want to reschedule for that day bc did not want to be charged if everything in apt was not working. Landlord phoned on jan 3 to tell me that apt needed new water heater and heat needed to be fixed all would be done on the 4th or so and would reschedule co inspection for the 6th or 9th of jan. I would be allowed to move some items in that weekend but not able to inhabit until co was approved. Am i still bound to this lease or has there been a breach of contract on side of landlord?
