How long does a landlord have to repair a leaking roof?

We contacted our management company about the roof leaking almost 4 months ago. A roofer came out 2 days later. I called to get an update a month later and got a reply that the owner was working on it. I heard nothing the following month. Then in the middle of the next month (last month), the management company came out to take pictures of damage inside. I heard nothing again until I contacted them last week. Another roofer sent out 4 days ago. Up until this date we still have not heard anything. What is the time they have for repairs and what legal actions can we take? We have damage on the inside of the unit and possible mold and a child with asthma lives in the house.
