Question

I have received anecdotal information that some tenants in London's private rented sector are being told by landlords that they will have to move out of their homes for as long as two months during the Olympics because the landlords can attract greater profit from tourists. Have you received similar information? What do you think, if anything, the Mayor of London can do to combat such activity if proved to be accurate?
