Most of these items would fail a basic housing inspection. Therefore, the house would be considered inhabitable. Section 8 would refuse to pay rent in these cases, and you could not evict due to the repairs. I suspect that most courts would see it the same.
This is a case of a slumlord managing the rental property.
