Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

I have been referencing a couple for one of my properties. There is a CCJ on one of the applicants reports, but I knew of this from the start and as its being paid and only a small amount I carried on with referencing.
The property they are living in I was told was a relatives so therefore no reference to be got, but I called at the house to put some paperwork through the letterbox and found property looked pretty rough and back garden full of old stuff.
I am reluctant to move forward with the application and feel perhaps that I should return the Holding Deposit.
My question is will I need to state the reason if I reject their application.
Can I be accused of discrimination.
