About Paul Shamplina

Paul Shamplina is an award-winning speaker and leader in his field, driven by a deep understanding of the need to constantly evolve in order to succeed personally and professionally.  Paul is an innovator, an educator and a fierce campaigner. Paul’s passion for helping others achieve their goals is evident in his energetic delivery of any speaking opportunity.


Paul Shamplina has spent over 30 years in the legal field helping landlords with problem tenants, starting his career as a clerk, then private investigator, debt collector and certified bailiff.

In 1999, he set up Landlord Action to put this expertise to good use, specialising in fixed-fee property recovery and tenant eviction in England and Wales.

Paul has since become a key figure throughout the property industry, hosting seminars, running training courses, and working with leading websites, forums and magazines to offer professional advice and guidance on everything from legislative changes to growing a property business.

He regularly appears in the national press, radio and television, with previous productions including: War at the Door, Meet the Landlords, Inside Out and The One Show, ITV’s Tenants From Hell, as well as BBC, ITV and Channel 4 News.

Most recently, Paul and his team at Landlord Action have featured regularly in Channel Five’s hit series ‘Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords’ (2015 – 2022). Paul has also co-hosted the ‘The Property Hour’ with Clive Bull on LBC Radio, and regularly contributes his expert guidance on BBC Radio London’s Drivetime with Eddie Nestor.

A down to earth Londoner, Paul has a great sense of humour and has helped thousands of landlords, letting agents and property businesses. He travels the country speaking, giving advice and carrying out regular seminars, and has acquired a reputation as “The Landlord’s Friend”, having co-written two books with fellow property expert, Kate Faulkner, to help landlords manage their properties.

Paul believes passionately in campaigning for a fairer private rented sector (for landlords and tenants) and campaigns tirelessly to improve standards, attending numerous Government Round Table to share his knowledge and effect change.

Furthermore, Paul is not only crucial to this industry because he knows the market inside out, but he is an asset to many other organisations who have learnt from him as he has developed his brand based on what the industry needs, not just on what his business needs.

Paul has achieved numerous accolades, including ‘Best Seminar Speaker’ at The National Landlord Investment Show Awards 2022 & 2019 and ‘Spokesperson of the Year’ at the Property Reporter Awards 2020.

"I've got to say Paul is one of the most fascinating people I have met in my entire life, not only is he a genuinely top guy, his knowledge, skills and ability lights up an entire room no matter what size the order is absolutely admirable. Whenever Paul is a speaker at any event you know he is going to pull in the crowds and keep everyone really brilliantly entertained and engaged. just when you think it wasn't possible his presentations just keep getting better and better every single time I see one and in referring business his way he never disappoints and jumps to the rescue very quickly. Paul is fearless and incredibly talented as not only a presenter but a businessman. Thank you Paul for always being awesome and role model to so many as well as the incredible lobbying work you do to improve our private rented sector and support those that are forever suffering at the hands of injustice."
