Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

Hello all, I hope someone can help. I own 3 apartments in a block, the only apartments in that block with our own entrance. We do not own the entrance/hallway the freeholder/landlord does. The landlord owns the building and on the ground floor an estate agency with its own entrance.
We are trying to allocate who is legally responsible for the hallway area. It’s not in any contract. It’s quite important as it will impact service charge percentage contributions.
The Freeholder says I must be responsible as only I use it, but I say it’s in the freeholder’s ownership, not mine, hence he should be liable.
Does anyone have a constructive opinion on this?
Thanks for any assistance.
