I lease my apartment, who is responsible for changing lights on my appliances? Also I have impossibly >12' high ceilings where several built in lights have gone out, do landlords usually change these?

I don't even know where I'd store a large ladder if I were to get one, I don't think my storage space would accommodate it. Nothing in the lease agreement says whose responsibility ongoing maintenance of these owner-owned items are.
So from general experience, am I going to have to figure out a way to replace these or can I contact building management?
I'm asking here first because my management, while good, is corporate and I need to know whether or not I need to push them or not.
I assume these items are similar in nature to the whole oven unit malfunctioning, which the landlord would fix.
