The legal team.
The Landlord Action legal team are experienced lawyers and paralegals who specialise in one area of the law. They are led by two people who aren’t only legal – they understand the property industry too.
Tim is an experienced landlord and tenant and commercial solicitor and has experience of being a landlord. Tim is also in-house solicitor for the property group Hamilton Fraser which acquired Landlord Action in May 2017.
Have you seen this man? He’s Paul Shamplina.
You’ve probably seen him on TV on in the papers. He’s our founder and he’s been fighting for landlords his entire professional life. He doesn’t hold back on his views and the national media are constantly asking for his expert opinion.
The exposure all began when The London Evening Standard called us “A Blessing For Landlords”. Since 1999 there have been too many articles to count. Landlord Action is constantly asked by national, local and trade press for comments and views on property issues.
BBC, ITV, CH4, CH5
As well as many appearances on different news programs, Landlord Action has been at the centre of three TV different series, one for ITV and three for CH5.
Landlord Action has been featured on many local and nation stations including Radio-2 with Jeremy Vine and more than one appearance on Radio-4 Moneybox.
London’s loudest voice
Paul has been co-hosting a weekly property phone-in with Clive Bull on LBC.
Beware of the copycats.
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Since we revolutionised this legal service a multitude of small business have copied us. The flattery is fine, but landlords and agents should be cautious. Many internet services don’t use solicitors and often their ‘fixed rates’ don’t even include the court fees or VAT.
“This really has been an incredibly busy year for Landlord Action. The team has worked extremely hard to adapt to the company changes whilst ensuring we continue to provide an award winning service, and it looks like we have achieved this, so I am extremely proud. We have even more planned for next year, as we evolve our service to meet the ever changing needs of the fast paced buy-to-let industry and further support our network of landlords.”
Paul Shamplina, Founder of Landlord Action.
Our campaigns have changed the law.
Our campaigns have pulled landlords together and effected change. We changed the law on squatting and we continue to fight for landlords.
“Having regularly campaigned for landlords’ rights, Landlord Action is well known amongst the industry as a champion for landlords, previously fighting against unfair interest rate rises and criminalising squatting. This, coupled with their pioneering decision to become regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, helped scoop them this year’s award.”
