The owner of a block of flats in Granite Close in Grassy Park denies her tenants’ complaints (“Tenants fed up with landlord”, People’s Post, 29 August).

The tenants, who include single mothers and pensioners, claim they were left with no water for days. The residents say they were ill treated and will soon be forced to pay extra to cover for vacant flats.

The landlord, known only as Mrs Abrahams, says: “It is nobody’s business what is happening and I have no time for this hanky-panky business. I can’t believe what these tenants have said. You have listened to housewives who have done nothing but lie. All the allegations made are false. I have now fingered these tenants who spoke to People’s Post. They just have to pay their rent,” she says.

When asked about other claims made by the tenants, an angry Abrahams threatened to sue this paper for questioning her.

“Are you the police? You have no right to publish what is happening on my property and should have asked me for permission first as to whether you can write about this or not. These tenants are all about lies.”
