Vancouver media report that tenants are being evicted so their landlords can make more money during the 2010 Winter Games. One evicted tenant searched the web and found the house listed as an Olympic rental with the owner asking $12,000 a week in rent. London tenants should be alert to this as 2012 approaches. Landlords here may find it difficult to resist the huge increase in rental that their properties will command from visitors during the summer Games. Be warned!!
