HF Resolution Ltd, a subsidiary of Hamilton Fraser, has acquired one of the industry’s leading tenant eviction solicitor firms, Landlord Action.
Landlord Action was founded in 1999 as the first ever fixed-fee tenant eviction service. Led by Paul Shamplina, Landlord Action has since acted in more than 35,000 problem tenant cases, becoming a well known operator in the lettings sector.
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 a brand ambassador for Hamilton Fraser since last year, will continue to head up Landlord Action, along with his legal team who will now be based at Hamilton Fraser’s offices in Borehamwood.
“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” says Eddie Hooker, chief executive of Hamilton Fraser.
