Landlords warned not to discriminate against benefits tenants8:58 AM, 14th July 2020

Our landlord has rented out the garage at the back of the property, adjacent to the house, 4.5 metres away to be precise.
However we also rent the front shop off him and via a sub meter we feed the garage, which we don’t want to do, we have to do a separate bill and charge them. We really don’t like the situation, which is not great on our behalf as we live at the property and look at the garage and the guys don’t leave until 7/8pm.
Then the council have stepped in and he has no planning permission to let out the garage, so is now in breach, which he will contest.
What I want to know if anyone can HELP is, if they are operating out of a garage and we are supplying electricity from our shop to the garage, through no fault or wish of our own, are we within our rights to turn off the electricity, are we breaking the law by supplying the garage or who is breaking the law if any.
