Since I've moved into this complex in January 2019 I can't even remember how many times our water has been cut off (for HOURS at a time) due to "maintenance". The issue is I've probably gotten 5 notices total about water being cut off. Once they cut it at least 7 times in one month. I have video of my ice make making pinkish dirty ice after one of the times they cut the water. The water never stays off for only a couple hours I am talking about they cut it off at 9:30 am and sometimes by 6 PM it isn't back on. They haven't been responding when you ask about the water. The management company won't respond to my emails. I work from HOME so to say I have been inconvenienced is an understatement. I want to get out of my lease early since it is over in January and I literally cannot new dealing with this. It has been MONTHS of this. There are no repairs that take this damn long.
You can sue anyone if you believe you have a case. Your best bet is to click the link above to find a lawyer to consult. Having said that, both Landlords and Tenants have duties and rights under the lease contract and under GA law. A LL has a duty to repair and maintain the property in a livable condition. If you move out without their permission, they can sue you and possibly retain your security deposit. However, you may have a good case against them. LLs must follow the law and, if not, then you may be able to obtain a judgment against them which could include punitive damages as well. You are wise to take video and photos which are date-stamped as potential evidence in court. You should also record any phone calls or conversations to which you are a party. Keep a record of your reports/complaints. I would actually advise you to keep some samples as well. Speak with a lawyer about taking your case. Best wishes.
