Paul Shamplina helps landlord evict bankrupt Pete Burns

burnsA landlord claims to have suffered a mental breakdown due to the stress of renting to the former singer of 80s group Dead or Alive Pete Burns.

The bankrupt singer was evicted from his London flat today after failing to pay more than £34,000 in rent.

Paul Shamplina founder of Landlord Action, the landlords legal representatives that carried out the evictions said “We carried out the eviction this morning, with the bailiffs from the court.

“This has been a complete nightmare for the landlord, he has lost over £34’000 in rent and has suffered a breakdown because of the stress caused by the tenants not paying him the rent and various incidents at the flat, where he’s received numerous complaints.”

“Unfortunately he was too understanding to Mr Burns problems, which has resulted in him being owed over £34,000 and lost so much time , as well as affecting his own well being.”

“Obviously its harder for the landlord, as he used to live in the property, so he has an emotional tie to it.”

“We are constantly offering advice and educating landlords about their obligations , when they are having to go through the stress of going to court and evicting a tenant.”

Pete Burns was most famous for the hit  You Spin Me Around, but has remained relatively out of the public eye since Celebrity Big Brother in 2006.

i hope the landlord has applied for financial restitution--all the way as at least it will stop him abusing other landlords

What’s the point if the tenant is already bankrupt (and in this case, since deceased)?
