Verbal promises are difficult to prove. It is always safe to first verbally make a request that a problem be solve (assuming it is a repair), and within a week or two send a certified letter reminding them of their oversight. Depending on the relationship you have with the landlord, (I assume you don't) state the date of the last conversation, reminding them of the problem, and your dissatisfation. This certified letter (keep all receipts) should inform the landlord that you have made this request.
In the event you decide to withhold rent or start an HP Action, (look in to housing court) you can claim you told the landlord and have proof the landlord received your letter (returned receipt).
