"DMP conducted a  building survey and also arranged for an electrical survey for me. I found them to be a straightforward, honest company to deal with. They explained everything clearly and included photos of the problems they discovered, where possible, which was very helpful.

They have a breadth of knowledge and experience which made me feel I was in safe hands. They take pride in their work which was delivered on or before time.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending them."

Linda Naylor,

"After reviewing a number of companies I opted for the services of Delaney Marling Partnership to help me survey a 200+ year old house we wanted to buy. At every stage of the process Kevin was polite, patient and professional – no question or query was too much bother, even when I asked to meet Kevin on site to discuss his findings of the survey prior to the report being issued."
"The Building Survey report arrived on time and was copious in its detail putting my mind at rest about taking the step to continue with the house purchase. I would have no hesitation in recommending Delaney Marling Partnership for professional residential building surveys."

Neil Tomlinson, Residential Survey

"Thank you very much for your survey on my new house. I found you extremely easy to work with and liked the way in which you explained all points to me in plain English. Being able to get hold of you by email, text, phone or Facebook was great and your flexibility to my timings was much appreciated. Thanks again, Deanne"

Fiona Ives, house survey, Huttton Cranswick, East Yorkshire.

“I would without doubt recommend DMP for all your property issues. They completed a house survey for a property I was in the process of purchasing and I have to say, Simon was very thorough and incredibly knowledgable, pointing out things that are just not obvious to the un-trained eye. There report included a list of things that were of concern, may cause issues in the future and nothing to worry about. He also provided us with some fantastic images to illustrate the report so we knew exactly what he was talking about.”

“Even the vendor commented on how lovely Simon was and she too was impressed with his manner and the level of detail which showed in the report.”

“Before making any decisions about a property, be sure to contact DMP first as they will guide you every step of the way."

Delaney Marling Partnership were commissioned to undertake a cost reinstatement of a fire damaged property in Bridlington, to evaluate the cost of rebuilding the property in line with the RICS guidelines for McClarron Insurance.

Rhys Jones, McClarron Insurance in Malton.

“As an insurance broker, I would not hesitate to recommend Simon, Kevin and the DMP team to any of my clients in the future. A landlord client of mine was devastated when a property he owned was damaged in a fire, this was further impacted by the potential of him being underinsured which would have left him out of pocket by around £15,000. Thanks to DMP’s efficient and meticulous work we were able to counter the insurers valuation of the property and the client received a full six figure claim settlement from insurers. Thank you DMP!”

Rhys Jones, McClarron Insurance, Malton

Feedback is all good thanks, good to hand over to you guys knowing that you would be able to sort things professionally for me & that I wouldn’t have to worry about anything once you had got involved

Humber Regional Developer,

Thank you so much for the professional service shown on the survey you recently carried out for me. The speed and efficiency of the turnaround of the survey to getting the report was excellent and at a competitive price. Thanks again

David, Grimsby

We commissioned Delaney Marling Partnership to assist us with a feasibility study to look at our property, review the current facilities and provide advice on a potential expansion into larger premises. Throughout the process DMP were responsive and professional and the report we received was thorough and completed in a timely manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any business.

Fiona Pounder, Olmec -UK, Barton-upon-Humber

Earlier this year we viewed our current home for the first time, we weren’t originally looking for a renovation project but when we saw it we knew it would make our ideal home. 

It was immediately apparent that we needed to have a full structural survey carried out.  We didn’t hesitate to use the Delaney Marling partnership as they had a really friendly and professional approach to our initial enquiry.

Simon Delaney listened to what we needed and assured us that not only would we get a comprehensive written report but we could also have a conversation regarding the conclusions of the survey in ‘plain English’.

The survey itself was carried out by Kevin Marling who spent a considerable amount of time examining the structure and integrity of the building and gathering further information from neighbours which added a valuable insight into the history of the property. 

The report was comprehensive and included a number of photographs that highlighted aspects of the narrative content that we wouldn’t have seen ourselves, for example close up views of the chimney.  The survey was incredibly useful for us to start our plans for renovation and extending the property.

One of the recommendations was to use a structural engineer to examine the roof structure more closely which we’ve been able to do resulting in some amendments to the architects plans for the new extension.

We highly recommend the Delaney Marling Partnership to anyone considering having a full structural survey carried out on a domestic property.

Mr & Mrs Szczecinski, Grimsby

We were pleased with DMP’s very expedient response to our request to help us with a property acquisition. All the information we required  was presented in a clear and concise manner and it allowed us to make an informed decision regarding an investment. We wouldn’t hesitate to partner with them in the future.

Matthew Robinson, G.S.Kelsey Limited, Scunthorpe

I engaged Simon (Delaney Marling) earlier this year with a project to scope a new warehouse facility. Throughout the process the speed and professionalism displayed went beyond expectations at each stage. The end result was an excellent set of documentation without which our decisionmaking would have been much more challenging.

I would, without hesitation, recomend Simon to any other business.

Neil Winstanley, Firmenich

Simon is a member of our business network and has also provided guidance to me personally regarding a building surveying skills/services.  Within our network, Simon is an active contributor and supporter, he also is detailed, considerate to others and observant of their needs. He will go out of his way to assist.

When Simon provided guidance regarding a building survey, his advice was in plain English, swift and showed his professionalism which ended up helping us to avoid wasting a lot of money on a property which was not suitable and would also be a drain on our financial resources.

I attend many events around the Humberside, East Riding, North and North East Lincolnshire area and I know that my own views on Simon's professional service, caring attitude and desire to help is shared by many others I speak to.

Gary Payne, Gill Payne Partnership Ltd

I worked with Kevin and his team on a number of laboratory installations and refurbishment projects while at Smith & Nephew. Kevin is a great person to work with, being helpful, knowledgable and very cooperative. He was always open to new ideas and flexible in his role. I would recommend Kevin to anyone who required his services.

Ken Moore, Novartis

The report, prepared by Kevin, on our boundary helped us enormously with our recent dispute. Many thanks for all the hard work Kevin. The response was prompt, efficient, professional and friendly throughout. We were clearly listened to and never rushed; a pleasant change these days. We were very impressed with the service we received so much so that we have called them in again to assist us with Party Wall notification and other advice for our new extension.

Marilyn & Lance Thoresen, Scunthorpe

I work for a large construction company so I am used to seeing reports that shy away from opinions, when you personally pay for a report you want an opinion. What I got from DMP was a useful report on the property, not a long list of the obvious, it told me what was wrong, what may need further investigation and left me with a clear understanding of the property.
