Customer Question

I currently live the the state of Missouri. My partner and I have had our garbage disposal broken for some months now which we have reported via voice mail to our leasing office. That was fine to wait on since we had our dishwasher to clean our dishes in order to at least have our sink empty of dishes. It was about over a month ago that the circuit the dishwasher was connected to has stopped working and now we have no dishwasher. We called on that issue and the apartment manager whom which was new at the time told us that they were repairing a/c units which was fine at the time. Now it has been weeks later and we still haven't had our issue resolved. I have had dirty dishes sitting in my sink for a very long time. I had to buy paper plates to use so we could microwave food. My pots and pans are dirty so I cant cook the food in my freezer/fridge. We now have larva breeding in the bottom of the dishwasher from the load we ran before it stopped working. Please we don't know what to do, I tried to call the office today at 2:22pm and it went to voicemail. I also called their district (or whatever it is called) manager at that complex and no answer there. What do we legally have the right to do on this issue?

Have you sent them any written request for repairs or has it just been verbal?

.

Did they give you a date when they would be out to make repairs or did they just tell you they will get to you eventually?

thanks

Now we have not sent them a written letter just via phone.
They told us about about 2 weeks ago they would come out (i believe they said they would be out on the 15th) but no one ever came out.
