Our Approach

I highly recommend Nicholson Price Associates for an excellent and knowledgeable re-survey and design of structural repairs that were required to our building. Tim provided a very professional service in all areas.

Ms P M East Cheshire

Our experience with Nicholson Price Associates has been extremely positive. Advice has been competent, knowledgeable, professional and honest.. The finished planning, applications and drawings were professional and the design for the house was just as we’d imagined. Tim has made the stressful process of a lot smoother. We would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for planning advice/services.

Miss A T Manchester

Realising that we required specialist advice and guidance for repairs to our C15th, half-timbered house, we contacted Tim Nicholson of Nicholson Price Associates. He responded immediately and, with agreement, undertook an in-depth survey of the sections of the house about which we were most concerned. We were impressed with the quality and detail of the survey. Recommendations were specific and bespoke to our property. Tim visited regularly throughout the duration of work that followed, to ensure it complied with his recommendations. We found him to be extremely professional, pleasant, easy to contact and fairly priced. We recommend him thoroughly.

Mr I Henderson, Press, Shropshire

Tim’s report reflected his wide knowledge of older properties, their construction and any potential difficulties. The report was comprehensive and structured in a way that was informative and completely accessible. Technical data and detail was presented with clear explanations. A bonus for us was the inclusion of potential costings for remedial work needed. Throughout the process and after the completion of the report, Tim has been happy to answer any questions we had and his advice has been invaluable. I have no hesitation in recommending Nicholson Price Associates.

Mr K G East Cheshire

I felt that it would be appropriate to send you a quick email to express my sincere gratitude for all the assistance and advice that you have provided throughout what turned out to be a rather involved process. The high level of professionalism and experience you brought to the many negotiations and other dealings with the council were instrumental in achieving the final outcome. I highly recommend your services to anyone.

Mr AR South Cheshire

Following the survey you recently carried out for us on a property in north Herefordshire, we wanted to put on record our gratitude for the thoroughness and the excellence of the service you provided. Despite the obvious complexities of the house, which has parts ranging in date from the fifteenth century up to the twentieth, you were able to present us with a comprehensive and clear-eyed understanding and assessment of the condition of the property, pinpointing all of the relevant areas of concern, and going on to suggest potential areas for further investigation and estimated costs of remedial work. The survey document itself was highly detailed but clear and accessible. We were particularly grateful that the service did not end with the final survey, but continued in the form of ongoing telephone and email contact, which proved invaluable at resolving some of the more complex aspects of the property.

Mr RW Conservation Officer

Tim Nicholson has helped me with four different projects over the last two years. I have always found Tim to be honest, professional and reliable. He is one of the few people that I feel I can really trust. He is extremely knowledgeable, having impressive academic qualifications, as well as vast experience and this shows in the level of service he offers. He is a real expert in his field and happy to answer any question you might have. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nicholson Price Associates.'

Mr J E London Property Developer

We were extremely fortunate to find Nicholson Price Associates, buying an old building is a daunting prospect, but Tim and his team, have been incredibly supportive, informative, approachable and thorough. Tim's friendly and knowledgeable approach has reassured us at every stage. I have every confidence that his professionalism will help you make the right decisions armed with all the information you need, and recommend his services to anyone requiring a detailed knowledge of a historic building, 'warts and all'.
