HF Resolution Ltd, a subsidiary of Hamilton Fraser, has acquired the tenant eviction solicitor firm, Landlord Action Limited.
Landlord Action was founded in 1999 as the first ever fixed-fee tenant eviction service. Led by Founder Paul Shamplina, Landlord Action has since acted in more than 35,000 problem tenant cases, become a champion for landlords and won numerous industry accolades. Landlord Action obtained Solicitors Regulation Authority status in 2013. Campaigning extensively for landlord rights, Landlord Action played an instrumental role in changing the law to make squatting a criminal offence in 2012.
Set up in 1996, Hamilton Fraser has developed numerous interests in the property industry, offering insurances and is the owner and scheme administrator for mydeposits and Client Money Protect and through HF Resolution it runs the Property Redress Scheme.
Paul Shamplina will continue to lead Landlord Action, with his legal team, based at Hamilton Fraser’s offices in Borehamwood. Paul said, “We’re extremely excited to be making this announcement. I have dedicated the last 17 years to helping landlords and agents, and I plan to continue doing so with the added support of Hamilton Fraser.”
Eddie Hooker, CEO of Hamilton Fraser, added, “Landlord Action has built an excellent reputation with a solid record for success. This next step is an opportunity for both companies to merge their industry experience and skills to provide a comprehensive suite of services to landlords and agents.”
