  • how did you get locked IN? LOL

    no, maintenance people don't have to stay near by, sure it's nice if they do, but not required.

    if they said 40 minutes and it's been 4 hours, I'd be calling back and asking WTF is up!

  • Call back and log your phone times and their response times so that you can send a complaint to the management company.
    As for staying on property, not all properties have the facilities for on-call maintenance to stay. But if they say 40 minutes, it should not take 4 hrs.

  •   Technically emergency maintenanceis usually not on site, but 4 hrs is a little to long to have to wait though. I would file a complaint with the management company.

  • Maybe they felt that it wasn't that much of a big deal since you are INSIDE YOUR apartment. I don't understand how this happened what you mean by being locked in??? It's your home can you be more specific?

  • I would throw a fit with them let them know how you feel what if there was a fire tell them you want two weeks free rent for making you wait for 4 hours. I'd be pissed
