Private Landlord -- No Rent Control

i moved in 8/1/13 and signed a lease that said it was valid from 8/1/13 - 7/31/13. i was not allowed to have a dog but my daughter brought one home and we had it for about a week and then got rid of it. it was a three bedroom home and I was the only one listed on the lease but I let my daughter 19 and son 20 live with me without notifying the landlord. the landlord was very angry and said i breeched the contract. i was late by $150 of a $1000 rent for 1/14 so the landlord started yelling at me threatening to call his attorney. i asked her if she would prepfe I just move and she said yes, to give her a 30 day notice. so I wrote out the 30 days notice and left. the next day (1/10/14) she tells me i have to be out by 2/1 which leaves me 20 days to find a place, clean and move. i gave her the keys back on 2/3 because of the weekend. she kept my $750 deposit, for cleaning and breach of contract and also tacked on 7 months of non rent for breaking the lease. is there anything i can do?
