You need to check the contract you signed before you moved in. It will list all the obligations imposed on your landlord and this usually includes making sure you have hot water, heating etc. Even if the contract does not mention this - in UK law this obligation is usually implied by statute. However, just because he is liable to ensure you have this facility will not mean you can immediately terminate your lease if, say, your boiler breaks down. Obligations imposed on you by the contract will probably include immediately informing the landlord of any problems with utilities such as these and therefore allowing him the opportunity to fix it for you. If, however, you have repeatedly told him you have no heating and he has repeatedly ignored you then you may have a good case for terminating your lease. But you have to tell him about the problem first and give him the chance to remedy it.

If you move and have paid all your money to a landlord can that landlord take you to small claims court for rent they think is due?

Yes, if you have not fulfilled the terms of the lease. For instance if you moved out during the term of the lease, you would be liable for ALL the rent due for the entire term of the lease even though you had moved out. You may also not have given any notice required by the lease and thus be liable for the rent during this notice period. You may also have neglected to inform the landlord in writing that you wished to end the lease in which case you are still bound by the lease. Understand that a lease is a binding contract it gives YOU certain rights but it also requires you to pay the rent due to the landlord.

Boyfriend was added as occupant of my apartment to lease and arrested at our apartment due to police being called by neighbor can he be charged with tresspassing if he returns to apt.?

No. If his name is on the lease, he is permitted to come and go as he pleases. The only exception would be a restraining order which would prevent him from entering the apartment even if he lives there. The problem with that is that you would not be able to enter the apartment if he was already there too.
