Liability for defects in leased property?

We have entered into a lease contract without having proper inspection on the property. The agent we appointed has confirmed that the property is in good condition. But later on, we noticed that there are many defects in the building which requires immediate maintenance. We requested the landlord for maintenance but he refused. In such a situation, can we terminate the lease contract and claim compensation from the landlord?

According to Article 603 of the Civil laws, the landlord shall not be liable for any defect permissible by practice or any defect that was known to the tenant at the time of contracting or which the tenant could have detected if he had inspected the leased property with reasonable care, unless the tenant proves that the landlord has confirmed that the leased property is free of such defects or that he fraudulently concealed it. by gulf times.
