Since you are a renter.of a Unit..you need to speak with the Owner of that Unit and have him make the proper inquiries. Your power is to withhold rent payments from the Owner until this matter is resolved.

when we had a similar issue, the inspector came out within 24 hours, might have been immediately. I know of a nother issue in the neighborhood where the PD called the inspector at the time of the incident and he came from home right away.
since you RENT, you need to be calling your landlord.
of course you can contact the inspectors office yourself....there would be no law against it, and since you are not an owner, you don't answer to the HOA, you answer to your landlord.
YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO LEGALLY WITH HOLD RENT...certainly not if you have not notified your landlord in writing of the request to remedy the situation....and if the landlord is doing what they can to remedy it, you almost certainly would not be allowed to with hold rent.
some states allow with holding rent, some don't....and in states that do, there are specific circumstances and procedures.
