    With respect to bills pertaining to taxes such Corporation Tax or other property Tax, the owner is liable to pay.

    However regarding maintenance charges, legally a tenant is required to pay.

    So we suggest you write a letter to landlord stating that you are liable to pay maintenance charges. Further, also please ask the owner to charge the maintenance charges on yearly basis.
