No not something I would consider.
Looks like karndean/amtico to me, if its on a timber subfloor chances are it has been overboarded with thin ply so might be easier to get it all up in one go.
Lots of flooring guys only staple it down anyway.

Thanks, it's a screeded floor, I guess that you'd still suggest to strip it up?

If the vinyl is firmly stuck. Prime+Grip it, Magix Adhesive. Job done.
Hey Glynn, that's controversial (considering all the previous replies), when you mention "Prime+Grip it" does that mean use something like SBR with plastering sand mixed in?
Cheers

Prime + grip is a grippy primer! If Glynn is happy to guarantee his products for your situation then that's the way to go.

Personally I would remove the Vinyl. I tend to use a blowtorch to soften the pressure sensitive adhesive and a decent scraper. Or a heat gun.
