In your case you probably can’t. 

You have signed the contract, which makes it binding to YOU. 

Your husband has sent their signature over email with INTENT for them to be used and applied as a signature to the contract. 

Furthermore, you both have moved in the property and lived there for over two months, continuing to pay rent to your landlord. 

If this goes to court, your landlord is likely to win, but you really have to talk to a legal advisor before you do anything. 

Is there any particular reason to want out of the property so soon after moving in ? Is there any disrepair issues ? – You have more rights and power to make the property fit your life than you have to break the contract.
