3 Years Running: Buy-To-Let Legal Services Award
Daily Telegraph 10 April 2012
Paul Shamplina, founder of Landlord Action and member of The Landlord Syndicate, has been placed fifteenth in a list of twenty-five of the most influential people in British property as reported by the Daily Telegraph. Other movers and shakers within the industry include well known property presenters Phil Spencer and Kirstie Allsopp, Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, and even Prince Charles.
Having helped on over 20,000 instructions since Landlord Action started eleven years ago, Mr Shamplina has become famed for his ‘no nonsense’ approach to unruly tenants and for fronting pro-landlord political campaigns. His most high profile ones being ‘Rebalancing the Law’, which endeavoured to drive for speedier court action for landlords with problem tenants, and most recently his support in favour of criminalising squatting. He has also become a figure head for educating landlords and investors on the pitfalls of property investment, presenting over 450 seminars Nationwide.
Paul comments “It really is a privilege to have been recognised alongside such a high standard of property entrepreneurs from throughout the industry. My work is based on dealing with the non-glamorous side of property. From there, it has steered me from the practical elements of evicting problem tenants, through to highlighting the gritty reality to thousands of landlord in the hope to promote best practice and avoid costly mistakes. I have encountered some truly extraordinary cases from illegal subletting and squatting to record rental arrears and rogue property sourcing companies, I’ve seen it all.
I intend to continue educating and fighting landlords’ cases, and with an ever changing market I doubt my work will ever be done.”
Paul is also a member of The Landlord Syndicate which was formed in 2009 along with other leading players from the buy-to-let industry to provide a free ‘support centre’ for landlords.

Landlord action was set up by landlords for landlords with problem tenants. That is, tenants who are in rent arrears or break some other part of a tenancy agreement. Landlord & tenant law is a specialist area and we found solicitor charges were too much and too vague. When you have a bad tenant you want to evict them fast. Any landlord would want a bad tenant out. they want advice and help with the law. And that's what we do. We are experts in this area and unlike solicitors, we only act for landlords, never tenants. And we'll help recover the outstanding rent. Our free advice line is open to all landlords and we have carried out thousands of evictions.
