Unfortunately for the landlord, he cannot legally turn off the power even if she is not paying the rent or power bill. In the meantime, your friend should stop stealing the landlord's income and move out.

No they cannot. That is known as constructive eviction and is illegal. In the long run, deal with it. She's already stealing his money, so maybe rocking the boat isn't the smartest thing to do.

Bottom line here is she should focus her energy on getting into a place she can afford and not ruin her credit by staying where she is.

can i just go in and turn off the electricity as the fuses are in my part of the building

If she hasn't paid her rent the landlord can do anything they please, as it is their property. This includes turning the electric off, putting all her belongings in the street, changing locks etc... Until she pays the rent, she has no right to be in the property. She should feel lucky the landlord hasn't kicked her out yet!!!

this depends on the kind of agreement both parties have settled in. If your rent was to cover all space, electricity and water then the landlord have the right to shut it off. But if you are just paying for the space and the other expenses such as electricity and water is a different thing. Then you have the right that those other expenses you have made are not to be interrupted. Some lease spaces have individual meter counts of electricity and water consumption and the landlord don't care how much you consume on those meters because its your responsibility to pay them.

A whole part of paying rent is paying utilities and If that isn't done then yes they can shut the power off.
