Have you conducted, or do you intend to conduct, any research on the impact on London's housing market of landlords with second homes?

My team has commissioned the University of Liverpool to conduct research into empty and under-utilised homes, including second homes, as in order to understand their impact it is necessary to understand the scale of the issue. The research is considering definitions of empty and under-utilised homes, as well as potential data sources which could be used to better understand prevalence of these homes across London. The research will report later this year.
