I had to redecorate my whole house before moving in, various types of wallpaper - including some covered in paint..


steamer - black and decker - was a life saver, hold it on for 30 secs then scrape off, if it doesnt work you can score the paper slightly which will allow the steam to get into the holes and get into the paste...

The most important part after this is to get some decent sugar soap (but wear gloves) and wash the area down as steaming leaves the old glue quite gloopy, best to clean it off and start with fresh wall....
