Landlords criticised for Olympics evictions

The housing charity Shelter has said that several landlords in London are unlawfully evicting tenants in an attempt to make money out of the upcoming Olympics.

These claims have been backed up by estate agents, with one stating that some properties usually rented out for around £350 per week are now being advertised for as much as £6,000 per week.

As reports surface of some people being given as little as two weeks’ notice before having to vacate their homes, it is feared that the problem could worsen as the Games approach.

The practice has been roundly condemned by a number of groups, including the National Landlords Association. The advisory body explained that, as well as being unethical, such short-notice evictions can also be counterproductive to profit making, with the long-term benefits of having settled and reliable tenants widely recognised. 

Now that the schemes have been exposed, however, it is hoped that unscrupulous landlords will think twice before continuing to flout residential property law.
