Hi, can you please explain why three payments have been taken out of my bank acc without my permission, 1 is for £5 which is ok but there are 2 others payments which I know nothing about 1 is for £50 and 1 is for £44 ? Can you please let me know ASAP

A lot depends on what it says in your lease because in many
leases the landlord is allowed to do this otherwise you have a claim against
the landlord for breach of covenant for quiet enjoyment.

You potentially also have a claim in common-law nuisance but
you need to look at the lease because if the landlord owns your property and
next door and it says that he can do this, then you have no claim.

I will refer the payments to customer services for you
and you might want to do the same.
