A WEBSITE goes online on Friday for householders in East London who want to rent out their property to tourists and foreign visitors to the 2012 Olympics.
Those living in the five Olympic boroughs are being leafleted this week to register their properties online free on a 'no ties' basis to rent to spectators, journalists or families of athletes.
Fees will be charged to organisations and individuals looking for accommodation during the Games, with five per cent of net profits used to set up a fund to sponsor an athlete from East London.
Media and other organisations including travel firms, foreign Olympic associations and airlines are being invited to register to rent rooms or properties once the site stacks up enough properties.
A Home for the Games website comes online November 14.
