“Tim and the team are pragmatic, honest and exceedingly proactive”
Operations Director – Selective Marketplace Limited
I have worked with Tim before on the negotiations to buy our new premises and was impressed with the speed in which we moved on that deal but the commitment to making the sale of our Belton Road site happen was exceptional. Tim and the team are pragmatic, honest and exceedingly proactive. I’m not sure there are many agents who would have pushed a deal over the line so late on Christmas Eve. We retain FHP as our sole agents as we take the next step to rationalise our property portfolio.

Anthony was fantastic he worked very hard behind the scenes to ensure all parties hit the completion deadline. FHP were extremely accommodating when it came to multiple viewings nothing was too much trouble for them. Communication was faultless, in fact it went above and beyond. Anthony took a genuine interest into my business and it wasn’t just a sale for them, it felt much more personal. The purchase and renovation project has been such a positive experience for me and I’ve learnt so many new skills from it. It now gives me this wonderful opportunity to supply high end rental space to qualified practitioners. It also allows the local community to access this amazing support and healing network. I really look forward to working with Anthony and FHP again in the future.

We would not hesitate to recommend him, or FHP, to others looking for a professional company to assist with commercial property related matters.

“In our view, Cameron and FHP offer the balance of professional competence, speed of delivery and value for money.”
Steve Cox, Transform Trust
I engaged Cameron Butler at FHP to conduct site valuations for schools joining Transform Trust. In 2016/7, 5 schools were surveyed and valuations obtained. In 2017/8, 2 further schools were surveyed and valued. In every case Cameron Butler attended the school and conducted the survey. He was flexible with the dates to accommodate each school and in all 7 cases, local school staff commented on the professionalism and courtesy of the surveyor. At Trust Centre I received the completed reports within a week of the final survey being conducted, and these reports were used in the final audit evaluations without question. Transform Trust had used other firms of surveyors previously. In our view, Cameron and FHP offer the balance of professional competence, speed of delivery and value for money.

Richard Carter – Keyload Limited
The advice Alastair Fearn provided us with was clear, well presented and accurate allowing us to build a genuine picture of our investment and decide on the next step.
“We are grateful to Alastair for providing us with sound advice.”
Mohan Sahni – JJ Properties
Alastair Fearn has been instrumental in making sure that our investment property serves us well for years to come. Our tenant had gone into Administration and the value of our property was in free fall. We are grateful to Alastair for providing us with sound advice in relation to not only rent recovery but dilapidations and then finding a new tenant for us without needing to take the property to the market. We now have a strong tenant who has signed a lease for 10 years which has not only restored our income stream but also the value of the property.
“I just wanted to say I thought to report undertaken by Alastair was excellent!”
Neil Richardson – Real Estate Director – InterBay Commercial
I have recently reviewed your valuation report and I just wanted to say I thought it was an excellent well-presented report with good transparent methodology and communication. As a team we review 40 valuation reports a week here and it would be good if they were all like yours. Unfortunately they are not!
“I found Alan's knowledge and enthusiasm about Nottingham City Centre to be first rate.”
Paul Kilpatrick – Property & Finance Director – Barburrito
I met with Alan at the BCSC conference where I found his knowledge and enthusiasm about the property he was marketing and Nottingham City Centre to be first rate. We subsequently arranged a visit to Nottingham, where he took us for a tour of the city, explaining in detail how the city was shopped and the strength of the location. We have now chosen Nottingham for our next site and look forward to opening our 8th Restaurant in the city. I have no hesitation in recommending Alan and FHP Property Consultants.
“Since his appointment Alan has undertaken lettings to a number of key retailers.”
Nick Williams – Westfield Leasing Executive

“Tim's friendly and approachable manner, coupled with his professional skills, have produced a very favourable result for our partnership.”
Robert Jones – RMJ Estates
Our unit was vacated last Xmas time, and we continued to instruct a national agent that had been trying to assign the original lease on behalf of our former tenants. As soon as this lease had expired, we looked at the market place locally and turned to Tim at FHP as he had been recommended to us and had offices in both Nottingham and Derby. We were then delighted to secure such a big name tenant in a relatively short period of time. Tim's friendly and approachable manner, coupled with his professional skills, have produced a very favourable result for our partnership.
“Tim has always worked efficiently and conscientiously achieving good results.”
Charles Alcock – Director – M7 Real Estate
I have undertaken business with Tim for over 15 years on a number of projects across the Midlands encompassing acquisitions, lettings on multi-let industrial estates and disposals. He has always worked efficiently and conscientiously achieving good results and keeping us informed along the way.
“There is no doubt that we couldn't have done the deal without Tim and his efforts have gone above and beyond.”
David Weisberg – Rammon Group
This was a fantastic deal and Tim Gilbertson and FHP have performed superbly. There is no doubt that we couldn't have done the deal without Tim and his efforts have gone above and beyond the call of duty. We can only thank him most sincerely and would recommend his services to any potential landlord or vendor.
“Working with John I know that he is seeking to ensure that the deal negotiated meets exactly with the brief that has been outlined.”
Andy Matthews – Gateley LLP
I have worked with, for and alongside John for 20 years having initially met on the sports pitch. John has provided advice to Gateley which has enabled the firm to continue its organic growth within the East Midlands region and most particularly helped us move to our new offices at Park View House in Central Nottingham. What I enjoy and value is that in working with John I know that he is seeking to ensure that the deal negotiated meets exactly with the brief that has been outlined and where we are working together there is a clear communication and understanding that enables us to practically and successfully negotiate our way through a problem to get the right result.
“John provided me with a clear synopsis of the options that were available.”
Ian Smit – Shakespeares
John has assisted me in the relocation of our Leicester and Nottingham offices. John provided me with a clear synopsis of the options that were available, summarised the pros and cons of the opportunities and the occupational costs involved and achieved through negotiation the financial objectives that we were seeking to achieve. Most importantly after the deal was agreed John was still there to help me resolve issues that arose both of a legal and practical nature.
“I would be very happy to retain FHP for all of my future property advice.”
John has acted for me on a number of occasions over the past 15 years, most recently when our office building in the centre of Nottingham became vacant. The matter was complicated by an outstanding dilapidations claim but I am pleased to say... that within a six month period our building is once again tenanted, the dilapidations were fully settled and whilst the process was not without its problems John guided us through with sound practical advice and protected both our income and asset value. I would be very happy to retain FHP for all of my future property advice.

Keith Collis – Ropewalk Industrial Estate
In the space of approximately two years since I appointed FHP as Managing and Letting Agents for my property at the Ropewalk in Ilkeston FHP have almost tripled the rent roll. The efforts and enthusiasm of FHP have resulted in the estate being virtually 100% let, the whole team are a pleasure to deal with and I cannot thank them enough.
“Tim has acted for us for several years and given us straightforward advice which has helped tailor our strategy.”

He has also achieved various lettings all to good quality companies and has sought to achieve the best outcome for us in terms of commercial agreement and strength of covenant, preferring to proactively seek out tenants who will be in the best long term interest of the estate.
“A first class service from a thoroughly professional outfit.”

David Greensmith – Director of Finance, Assets and Resources – Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service
FHP did a fantastic job reviewing all properties across our estate which included 33 stations and the headquarters site, this resulted is some positive rating reviews across the entire estate reducing our rates bill by over £100k per annum, and including the backdated appeals saved the Authority around £750k. We are delighted with the outcome of this review, and the very professional approach by the FHP team, a great result.
“Having worked with FHP over the years we knew that they would do their utmost to achieve our aspirations...”
Mike Tracey – Cannock Developments
We knew when our 21,000ft² building on Sherwood Park became vacant that we were setting our Marketing Agents a tough task in asking them to identify a strong company to let the entire building. Having worked with FHP over the years we knew that they would do their utmost to achieve our aspirations and by letting the entire building to Countrywide Surveyors they have done exactly that. FHP agreed terms in a competitive environment and worked alongside our Legal Advisors to conclude a very satisfactory outcome.
“FHP’s knowledge of the Nottingham market is invaluable in driving growth and identifying opportunities for our portfolio of Nottingham ownerships.”

“I cannot praise highly enough the work of Cameron Butler and FHP Property Consultants”
Jason McGuinness – Facilities Manager – Burnage Media Arts College, Manchester
I cannot praise highly enough the work of Cameron Butler and FHP Property Consultants. The School has recently converted to Academy status and Cameron's assistance helped ensure the transition went quickly and smoothly. Cameron carried out a valuation survey at short notice and fortunately for us, his professional and efficient work ethic meant that the School received the appraisal within three days - a valiant effort that was greatly appreciated. A big thank you to FHP and Cameron for all your help.
“A big 'thank you' to Cameron Butler, for preparing the valuation of our land and buildings, I would certainly recommend him to other newly converted academies.”
Julie Dimaline – Business Manager – Old Basford School, Nottingham
A big 'thank you' to Cameron Butler, for preparing the valuation of our land and buildings for our year-end accounts (our first as an Academy). He was more than willing to come out at the end of the school day, when pupils were off-site so that he could get around the site much more easily, and was very approachable and friendly but professional. He was aware that we were working to a tight time-scale and produced the report and valuation very promptly. I would certainly recommend him to other newly converted academies
“Thank you for a very professional service.”
Sarah Dickson – School Business Manager – The Hills Academy, Bedford
As the School Business Manager at The Hills Academy I would like to thank you for providing me with a competitive quotation and an exceptionally prompt visit to our premises to conduct the survey. To receive the report within a week was more than we could have hoped for. Thank you for a very professional service.
“I would like to express my thanks to Alastair Fearn for his hard work!”
Leon Jacobson – Grade Products
Having previously employed other rating surveyors without success I was interested to see if a different approach from FHP would yield a positive result. I was therefore extremely pleased when I was informed of the Valuation Tribunal decision and I would like to express my thanks to Alastair Fearn for his hard work in achieving this result.
“At every step Jessica has been professional and knowledgeable.”
Mark Rees – Director – Penmark Cards
Since instructing the business rates team at FHP to look at our retail portfolio 18 months ago we have seen a steady flow of rateable value reductions and subsequent refunds. We have used FHP as our property consultants for 6 years for agency matters and have always been pleased with the results, and I’m very pleased we extended this business relationship to looking at our rates liabilities as well. At every step Jessica has been professional and knowledgeable and I would recommend her and the business rates team to anyone based on their work to date.
“We have been delighted with the level of service that Jessica has provided.”
Rob Wood – Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service
We have been delighted with the level of service that Jessica has provided when looking at the Business Rates for Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service. Over the last 18 months they have assessed each station, sorted discretionary reliefs from Councils, and appealed many of the Rateable Values. The savings from these appeals and associated auditing to date total near on £100,000 which is very welcome news in what are very austere times for many Fire and Rescue Services. At each step of the process we have been kept informed of progress and savings achieved, and I would not hesitate to recommend the Business Rates team to others as efficient, knowledgeable and dedicated in helping their clients save money.
“Cameron was outstandingly professional.”
Colin & Sue Ward, Loughborough
We would like to thank Cameron Butler for his invaluable work, advice and expertise during the compulsory purchase of our home and family butchers business. Recommended by our accountant, Cameron was outstandingly professional and, despite numerous challenges from the County Council, remained resolute during the long and technical negotiations. Without his dedication it would have been almost impossible to have undertaken these negotiations and continue to run our business. The efforts of Cameron minimised the stress of this process, for which we and our family will be forever grateful. We would have no hesitation in recommending FHP to people in the future, as would our accountant and solicitor.
“I have been delighted with their service and results.”
Rod Neasham – Centre Manager – Market Place Shopping Centre, Bolton
The team at FHP have been providing my Shopping Centre with rating advice over the last 5 years and I have been delighted with their service and results. They have proactively challenged and obtained reductions in the levels of Rateable Values and constantly monitor changes so that no opportunities for making savings are lost. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services and am looking forward to them continuing to achieve great results for the Centre.
“I would have no hesitation in recommending their services”
Derek Millar – Centre Manager – The Grange & Pyramids Shopping Centre, Birkenhead
FHP has been providing business rates advice to the owners of my Centre since April 2008 and we have built up an excellent working relationship with them over this time. They proactively challenge all aspects of business rates liability for us with outstanding results. The team ensure our exposure is minimised to the lowest possible levels, they have their ears to the ground and act upon local information provided in a swift and expedient manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services and thank them for all their endeavours to date.
“Tims market knowledge and experience in this sector are invaluable!”
Gill Merritt – Merritts
Tim at FHP has acted on my behalf now for well over 10 years and during that time he has effectively become my Property Director from afar! He has bought and sold investments for me, re-housed my various businesses and bought both on and off market opportunities to me, all of which have been a terrific success. His market knowledge and experience in this sector are invaluable and I cannot recommend his services highly enough I look forward to working with Tim and FHP once again in the very near future.

A quick note to thank Mark Bradley for his hard work and unrelenting efforts to get my lease sorted out.
“Cameron provided a professional and informed service.”
Mike Powell – Head of Educational Support – The White Hills Park Federation Trust
As a recently converted Academy Trust, we required a firm to provide a factual valuation for the balance sheet and reinstatement values for insurance purposes. At the outset Cameron provided a professional and informed service. The actual visit to inspect the Trust’s three school sites was non-intrusive and carried out with the schools full of students and staff on site. Post visit, Cameron checked a number of points to ensure the factual correctness of the final product and kept us informed of the progress of the report up to its final production. I would like to thank Cameron for all his support and making another requirement of Academy conversion seem uncomplicated and reducing my stress levels.

Tim made every effort to offer what was available, he knew what we wanted and was very straight talking, so I had every confidence he was the man for the job to sell our site here in Somercotes. Well done to FHP! Tim is now concluding our relocation purchase!
