An elderly woman is at risk of losing her retirement village apartment - and it's all over a dispute with the owners about two windows and a walkway.

Metlifecare, owner of the Waitakere Gardens village in Henderson, has accused tenant Sandra Williams of basically abandoning her apartment and causing "nuisance, annoyance and distress".

But Williams is sticking to her guns in a row that revolves around two apartment windows that no longer open, a newly enclosed walkway, beefed-up fire regulations, and consultation.

Williams, 74, moved into the Henderson village in 2009, before Metlifecare bought it.
