I am sorry to hear this. If the building is sold is there enough equity to cover the mortgage?

yes

Then so long as the mortgage gets paid off in full the bank will not have anything to go after you for.You can cancel your contract for heating once the bank takes over the building. But you are going to be out a lot more money than if you sell the building yourself. The bank will not get as high a fee as you will for the building and on top of that you will be stuck with the foreclosure fees, legal fees, penalties for defaulting on the mortgage etc. It is by far better to sell the building yourself.
