‘People are going to need a place to stay during the Games; we can’t have half the world’s tourists living on the streets of London.’



Home is a sacred place for many of us, a refuge of calm to return to after a stressful day. To accommodate the huge number of people that need a place to stay this summer, some new doors are opening. The New Landlords presents east Londoners who are renting out their homes to complete strangers during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
