Why do they say you can't work?
Very often in a leasehold situation you can not work from home and this would appear to be the situation here., I would speak with the landlords and try to come to a solution - it would not be fair for you to be treated so different from your neighbour. Happy to discuss but please rate positive.
Thank you for your question
From what you have said sadly the two situations are different.
I see that in fact you have clients coming to your home - this is what is not allowed and what is perceived as being "running a business"
However of course you can do friend's hair at home as much as you like
Your neighbour however simply works at home and this is what is different
My colleague did not know that I was helping. Do you have further questions?
