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

As we know, running a business from home can be merely by using a computer, so would this contravene an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and possibly planning permission too?
I have a tenant who operates with a computer at home to market his business and although he has premises elsewhere to operate his business, he is now looking to install a walk in freezer in the house garage to store his products, the question being are we still within the terms of the tenancy agreement ?
As AST’s usually make it clear that no business is to be operated from the dwelling this is grey area isn’t it?
Where is the dividing line in this modern day and age, perhaps some light can be shed on this situation?
Looking forward to reading your responses.
