Hello I am a solicitor with 20 years experience. I will try to help you with this. How is it that the management company have come to do this. Have new properties been built? How much is the vast expense and what has gone on? Repairs/improvements to the tank or clearing up mess. Is there anything more in the deeds or anywhere else that you know of that sets out who is responsible for repairs etc.
As a general statement of law if the management company have increased the level of use on the tank and this has caused reasonably foreseeable harm to you then you will have a claim against them.
