Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I have an apartment in Birmingham, The Masshouse Plaza, recently we received notification that the resident of a commercial block had not paid their service charges for 2 years, and as residents of one of the residential blocks, we are now responsible for nearly £200,000 of debt owed to the Landlord by the commercial interest.
I am shocked that this ‘commercial responsibility’ wasn’t pointed out to us when we purchased, and that as residents who had no say on the commercial block, could not profit from it etc are left footing the bills.
It seems that Heads the Landlord wins, tails we loose.
Can anyone advise and let us know if there is any hope of redress for what seems a rather unfair policy.
