Hello.  My electricity was disconnected over a year ago due to non payment.  My landlord has also disappeared and not paid the levies for some time.  I have tried to make payment arrangements with no luck, as the trustees have decided to go the legal route to recover the costs.  Due to the lockdown I now need to work from home.  However, the body corporate refuses to reconnect the electricity during this time.  Do I have any recourse
