Landlords warned over 2012 renting
Londoners hoping to rent out their homes during the Olympic Games are being warned they could be breaking the law and face a fine, depending on where they live.
Westminster Council effectively bans short-term lets of 90 days or under, unless planning permission is obtained - but this is rarely given.
It is one of six councils in London which aims to enforce the law. The National Association of Estate Agents is calling for a review of the law on short-term lettings.
