Someone mentioned it may be covered by landlords insurance this is usually the case( in my experience) If it was malicious damage caused by a tenant( depending ontheir level of cover though)and not only that if it was claim able; your owner may have excesses be may need to pay, So I doubt that would be an option, also, you wouldn't want to claim on your car insurance for someone else's doing if you didn't have too would you? You get what I mean?
If you replace what is broken/ruined your record will not be damaged or tarnished if you leave the property and leave behind these damages that's when your records will be tarnished.
my advice: report the damage let them know your fixing the problem and be open to the real estate wanting to come have a look at both the damage and the rectification.

Also the real estate may be open to giving you their preferred contractors to do the work aswell.
alternatively and I hate to suggest it because as a property manager myself I hate it when people get others involved but maybe send the department manager a email letting him/her know what's going on and that you haven't heard back and your concerned about what to do. Try not to paint your property manager badly or this will only make her/him dislike you. As a department manager is thier manager..
Generally you can find out emails and what role people play in the business on their websites.. Have a look :-)
Would it be a bad thing to just give the owners a call to let them know where it's at? That you've been trying to call and email but no response from the real estate? Our owners are pretty good and when we told them the real estate told us the owners had 'deep pockets' and left us with no oven for about 6 weeks, the owners swiftly changed real estates and told us they weren't informed of the problem for a particular amount of time! Anything we notify the owners and the real estate of is addressed properly and pretty quickly. But if we don't email the owner and only the real estate we tend to wait a lot longer.....
I think if you have met the owners and have a reasonable relationship with them then I'd give them the call just to let them know. Hope you get some answers soon xoxoxo
