Kickboards simply need to be cut down. Very simple fix that i have done dozens of times.

There is a few options
Use jigsaw to scribe to tiles
Use electric planer to shape if the floor
Use hanndsaw if your good at it to fit neat
Once those are done I would use clear silicone right across to keep it sealed and no damage

Plinths just need a bit cutting off the top to get them back on...real easy job and a carpenter or handyman should be able to get this sorted for you!

You need to hire a carpenter to reduce the height of the kick boards and seal the cut edge against any moisture, then reinstall kick boards

If the tiles have been layed correctly you should be able just to rip the plinths down. Anybody with a little bit of carpentry/Joinery knowledge should be perfectly capable of doing this.
