No matter what, you should pay your rent. No excuse for not paying the rent. If the landlord is not repairing the unit you can sue him, but still pay the rent.
Eviction on your credit report will lessen your chances to rent anywhere else.
Can you work something out with your landlord such as paying 50% of the rent due now and a little extra each week. Most landlords want to find a way to work it out.
Best of luck,
Hope this is what you are asking about.
