Does the following situation render the lease contract void:

Factory was let to me without disclosing numerous roof leakages including ones running over DB boxes. Such leakages has compromised the start of our operations due to potential risks. However, landlord probably didn’t know about those leakages themselves.

Landlord has left couple of their machinery in the leased premises and upon signing of lease, it was verbally agreed that the machines will be moved out in mid October 2017. It is now 2018 and the machines are still there.
