Leading evictions specialist Landlord Action has a new look after the company’s redesigned logo and website went live today.
Paul Shamplina, who is currently busy filming a special report on evictions with ITV, says the ‘powerful and bold’ branding signifies the strength of the company and goes hand in hand with the more complex legal cases that will be undertaken by the team.
Founded in 1999 as the UK’s first fixed-fee evictions specialist for private and corporate landlords and now employing over 200 legal professionals, it joined the Hamilton Fraser family in 2017.
This enabled the group to offer an end-to-end lifecycle service to landlords, covering everything from insuring their property and protecting the deposit, to protecting against poor service by their letting agent and helping landlords get their property back in the event of non-payment of rent or other tenancy issues.
The past two years have been tumultuous for landlords, with eviction suspensions and extended notice periods.
Since the ban on bailiff enforced evictions ended, the number of renters being evicted has increased and Landlord Action predicts that in 2022 possession figures will double when compared to 2020 and 2021.
“Supporting landlords in stressful times is what we do,” says Paul Shamplina, founder and also Chief Commercial Officer at Hamilton Fraser (main picture).
“Our business has evolved, and our team has grown to deal with the effects of the pandemic and changes in the market.
“We will continue to manage the rise in possessions, whilst also broadening our focus to encompass the more complex legal issues facing landlords in today’s market, given the shift of power in the tenant’s favour.
“Going forward, our services will become more and more important to landlords as the economy gradually unlocks following a tough winter.”
Paul Sowerbutts (pictured), who joined the company as Head of Legal last year, says: “This fantastic rebrand is the next step in Landlord Action’s move towards offering a one-stop shop for all of a landlord’s legal services.”
