Hamilton Fraser acquires Landlord Action

HF Resolution Ltd, a subsidiary of Hamilton Fraser, has acquired one of the industry’s leading tenant eviction solicitor firms, 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.

Since being set up in 1996, Hamilton Fraser has developed numerous interests in the property industry. It offers its popular Total Landlord Insurance and professional indemnity insurance for letting and estate agents. Hamilton Fraser is also an owner and scheme administrator for mydeposits and Client Money Protect and through HF Resolution it runs the Property Redress Scheme.

Paul Shamplina, who has been acting as Brand Ambassador for Hamilton Fraser since 2016, will continue to head up Landlord Action, along with his legal team who will now be based at Hamilton Fraser’s offices in Borehamwood. Commenting on the acquisition, Mr Shamplina 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. With several brands already providing valuable services throughout the Private Rented Sector, the acquisition not only complements Hamilton Fraser’s existing business, but is a great platform from which to grow Landlord Action.”

Eddie Hooker, CEO of Hamilton Fraser, comments: “Landlord Action has built an excellent reputation with a solid record for success and we have enjoyed working more closely with the team over the last few years. 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. We’re proud to say that Hamilton Fraser through HF Resolution is now approved and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, specialising in Housing Law.”
