Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

We own a commercial unit in a mixed used building. We recently had major issues with our Freeholder (FH) that has now mainly been resolved. The FH has presented us with an admin charge that we will dispute once we saw the breakdown.
What I would like to know is can we counter the admin fee with our own fees for replying to the FH questions that related to problems outside of our demise, in finding the answers we had to make visits and gather photography evidence and present this in emails many times.
Not only to the FH, but the the insurance brokers and the police. we calculated we have spent over 40 hours reporting on problems that the FH should have dealt with. would this be something we could present to them as our admin charge?
We hope this makes sense and thanks for reading
