"We had some potential issues with our industrial units and were recommended to use DMP. We were very impressed with their service. The inspection was arranged with careful consideration of COVID security, the inspection was thorough and the report timely. We'd happily recommend their services."

, Chris Robey

I am very happy with the service provided by the Delaney Marling Partnership. The report you produced was very thorough, it was written in a logical manner and used plain English.

The report produced has been very helpful to us in our decision making process. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Delaney Marling Partnership Ltd, as and when we require any further building survey work to be carried out I will definitely be in touch.

Ian Napper, Barry Napper and Co Ltd

Highly detailed report and very useful, many thanks.

Mike Rooney, East Yorkshire,

 “After careful research to find an experienced surveyor to help us review a period property for purchase we opted for Delaney Marling Partnership. Nothing was too much bother for Kevin, he was happy to meet us at the property and spent as much time as we needed answering questions we had.


His report was easy to understand and if we had any questions Kevin replied promptly to help us put our mind at ease.


We took Kevin’s offer to contact him freely after the survey had been completed as a little tongue in cheek, however we have been amazed that despite now 18 months on from moving into our home we can still contact Kevin if we have any queries about our house and he has been helpful and prompt in replying – what an amazing service! 


We would highly recommend Delaney Marling Partnership, we have already recommended them to friends and will no doubt use them again when we move again!”


Neil Tomlinson, Period Property owner

"This is the second time we have used DMP after they were recommended to us by several people. On both occasions they have been professional throughout, whilst being approachable and offering ongoing communication if questions arise later.

The report was delivered  in the time stated, providing clear information, easy to undersand and with many detailed photos for reference.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Delaney Marling Partnership."

Yvonne Watson, Hull Lighthouse, charity

"We highly recommend Delaney Marling Partnership for building surveys. The survey report prepared for one of our properties was very detailed and of high quality. It gave deep insight into areas needing repair and attention in the property."

Property Investor, Hull,

“We urgently needed to get some expert advice on the purchase of an early 1900’s period property.  Despite the constraints of the UK lockdown and following Government guidelines, both Simon and Kevin took the time to really understand our concerns about our domestic purchase as well as offering continued advice and support throughout the process.  They’ve provided excellent attention to detail throughout and remained flexible in very changeable circumstances.

"The in-depth survey on the property was far more thorough than we expected and has certainly revealed a number of serious issues that we would have never known had we not instructed DMP.  We've had great levels of ongoing communication through email and phone calls and we are really delighted with the service we’ve received.  We would not hesitate in recommending this service to any other buyers and are really grateful for the ongoing help, advice and importantly, the level of high quality, in-depth reporting."

AL & Kelly Cross

Al Cross,

"We are delighted with the fantastic service we have received from DMP. They made sure that our survey could progress safely during the lockdown and produced a very thorough and professional report, whilst taking the time to explain the key points and advise on the costs of remedial work. Highly recommended."

Julie Neilson, East Yorkshire

Julie Neilson,

"Please thank everyone for their help. I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone who needed the kind of help that we did. You have been there at every stage answering our questions as best you could and fulfilled the requirement by health and safety East Riding.
Your staff are polite, understanding and professional."

Linda, Ladybird Preschool

"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 (residential buyer)

Linda Naylor,

"I have used DMP in both a personal and professional capacity a few times now and have always been very impressed with the service that I have received, so much so that we refer with confidence to clients when they ask for recommendations of good surveyors and it is always nice to hear from my clients the great feedback about the team at DMP, as this reflects on my business and really adds value to my clients.

What impresses me about the team, is that they are all approachable and very knowledgeable which, to a large extent, you would expect a Chartered Building Surveyor to be technicallyknowledgeable at what they do. However they are excellent at communicating this in a very clear and understandable way and are more than happy to take the time to expand on anything and, offer realistic and comprehendible solutions to problems that they highlight in their survey reports.

Most recently DMP carried out a structural survey for me on a building that I am purchasing and their report has helped me plan for the renovations of the building and they went the extra mile on the report to suggest different layouts and ways of achieving services for what we had in mind.

Ultimately and probably most importantly the confidence that I have in DMP has allowed me to progress with the purchase of the property and able to make good decisions based upon good information."

Martin English, Homelink

"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

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"

Deanne Thomas, Residential survey

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."

Fiona Ives,

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

I engaged Delaney Marling to conduct a building survey on a residential property in Market Weighton. From the initial conversation to the final report of the survey, every part of the process was very thorough and professional.

Being able to rely upon the expertise that Delaney Marling possesses was very reassuring and I would certainly recommend their services to anyone looking to have a similar survey conducted as they were excellent.

Mike Linstead, Market Weighton

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,

A very quick, efficient and  professional service. A very detailed report but also easy to understand. Staff very approachable.

Cheryl Fergus, Easington, East Yorkshire

We instructed Simon Delaney to carry out a defects report on a property we were looking to lease as offices.  He carried out the inspection promptly and produced a thorough and detailed report which identified several defects of which we were unaware. The enabled us to go back to the landlord to negotiate a lease contract that was much lower risk for us, potentially saving us the expensive costs associated with putting right the defects in question. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simon Delaney's services - you can be assured that he will cover every nook and cranny and spot even the smallest defects.

Chris Whitelock, Pure Renewables, Hull

I am writing to say how very pleased I was with the Building Survey conducted by Simon and Kevin. As soon as I had accepted their competitive quotation they proved to be reliable and efficient and stood by their commitment to undertake the survey in a timely manner.

They were thorough when they conducted the survey and they went on to then produce an extremely comprehensive report covering all the aspects one would expect from a survey of this level.

Simon also took extra care to explain some of the technical phrasing to me in layman's terminology. I cannot praise them too highly as their expertise meant I was then able to come to a decision as to whether to proceed with the house purchase.

I will have no hesitation in recommending them to others who want a thoroughly professional service.

Colleen, Hull

Just a note of thanks for your company's input and execution of our recent dilapidation's claim with the outgoing tenant. My Father and I were particularly pleased with yours and Kevin's dealings on the matter, which culminated in a satisfactory outcome for all parties involved. We would not hesitate to use you again and will recommend the Delaney Marling Partnership to our contacts.

Darren Hooson (Director), Lakeland Central (Hull) Ltd

Simon and Kevin both spent the morning investigating cracks in our walls and ceiling. They were responsive, friendly and very thorough in their survey. Their conclusions in their detailed report were also thorough. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to use their services.

Mrs Clark, Hornsea

I was most impressed with the service I received from The Delaney Marling Partnership Ltd. Kevin Marling knew we needed a report quickly and he emailed me the full report late on the evening of the day he visited the property. I received the hard copy two days later. Kevin provided a quick response to my email regarding the costing of the defects and welcomed any further questions or queries. The service was not only speedy, it was also professional, efficient and friendly

Mrs Kay Morton, York

Simon gave me advice recently by phone and email when I had concerns about the structure of my kitchen and bathroom.  He responded to all my queries very promptly which was a pleasent surprise.  It really was reassuring to know he was there and willing to help and at no charge!

Joyce Phillips, Home Owner, Beverley

Thank you for all your hard work and quick acting.

Mr Bristowe, Little Pasture Farm

Delaney Marling Partnership did an incredibly thorough job.

Mrs Innes, Burton Pidsea

Thank you so much for the survey.  We are very pleased with it.  Delaney Marling Partnership told exactly what we needed to know, and in great detail.  The photos taken of 'hard to reach places' were extremely helpful! We are still in negotiations, but the survey has given us hard core evidence to put in front of landlords. I can totally recommend Delaney Marling Partnership.

Lindsay Hartley, ELK Marketing & Planning Ltd

Many thanks for your help with our programme of year 10 interviews. We really do appreciate the generosity of our interviewers who give freely of their time and expertise each year. It is very beneficial for our students to meet people from the 'real' world of work who can give tips about letters of application and CV's and help them with suggestions about how to present themselves at interview. We find that they are often more willing to take ideas from 'outsiders' than from the teaching staff they meet every day.

Careers Coordinator, Hornsea School & Language College

Many thanks for your support for delivering the 'Get Ahead in Business Day' at Newland School for Girls.  It was a brilliant day and feedback from pupils as been really positive.  We look forward to working with you again in the future.

, Newland High School for Girls, Hull

Simon and his partner, Kevin, are professional, experienced and expert in their field. They have been at hand recently to help our business in its hour of need and were totally reliable, flexible and went the extra mile to solve our problems. We are very grateful and would recommend them highly!

Nicki Rowland, Perfect 32

Delaney Marling Partnership helped us to design a purpose built GMP production facility.  Their knowledge of building regulations, health and safety requirements were right up to date and very helpful.  They were very flexible with the design and  building cost and were able to meet our requirements.

Jamie Christie, Lifeplan Ltd

We recently employed the services of Simon and his business partner Kevin Marling to conduct a survey on a property we were looking to purchase.  They performed the work above and beyond our expectations and in a very timely manner.  Simon and Kevin's report and advice were both detailed and understandable and we were extremely impressed with their attention to detail and expert professional knowledge.  As a result we were able to acquire the property with convidence and we would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and Kevin to both business colleagues and friends alike for both commercial and domestic work.

Chris Goodman, Automotive Funding Solutions Ltd

Delaney Marling Partnership carried out a photographic and writted Schedule of Condition for Vuba before we rented our new unit.  They did a great job, saving us a lot of time and money with their careful observations.

Sean Scott, Vuba Supplies

I'd like to say thank you on behalf of Firmenich for a good job well done.  Done safely, to budget, to the scope we agreed and on a time-scale to match our needs.

Delaney Marling Partnership Ltd were originally brought in to undertake a feasibility study for a new flammables warehouse at our Thirsk site that had to comply with the rigid recommendations of our insurer FM Global.  This was experience that they had from managing other projects where this insurer had been involved.

As the project changed over a period of time, we asked the DMP team to undertake the planning and building control submissions and take on the role of CDMc.  We really appreciated the flexible approach shown throughout the project which has allowed us to manage the inevitable changes and unexpected snags in a very amicable and pragmatic manner.  In particular you've always been available to give advice and worked with ourselves and the Principal Contractor to come up with practical solutions.  Safety was always the top priority for me on this project and I was always very confident that things would be done the right way.

I would happily recommend Delaney Marling Partnership Ltd to others or to work with Firmenich again.  In short, it has been great to work with you on this project.

Duncan Hinchcliffe, Firmenich Ltd

The Delaney Marling Partnership has just saved me in excess of £1,000 plus potential re-occuring costs! I thought I had damp in my home and was told by a couple of builders that it needed injecting, quoting from £280 to £1200. Simon and Kevin surveyed the property, identified an issue with airflow and recommended ways to sort it out. This is a perfect example of getting excellent service and advice from true professionals who deserve a great reputation rather than being on the look out for a quick buck.

Jess Clark, Divine Clark PR

Your survey was worth its weight in gold.  The structured and precise survey that you did on our proposed new property in Doncaster, gave us a fantastic bargaining tool.

It saved us getting into a lease that could have cost us thousands in repairs in the future, the concise and detailed report was so good it gave us the opportunity to negotiate a three month rent free period, a reduced rent for the first two years and to exempt the roof and exterior walls from the full repairing lease.

Whenever I decide to investigate the possibility of new premises, I will be requiring your services and will actively encourage others to do the same.  As far as I am concerned, your services are now an integral part of any future property deals, whether buying or leasing, purchasing or selling. 

Many thanks for your fast and efficient help.

Tony Smith, Golden Fry

I engaged Simon (of Delaney Marling Partnership Ltd) 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 decision making would have been much more challenging. I would, without hesitation, recommend Simon to any other business.

Neil Winstanley, Firmenich Ltd

Delaney Marling Partnership helped us to design a purpose built GMP production facility, their knowledge of building regulations, health and safety requirements were right up to date and very helpful. They were very flexible with the design and the building cost and were able to meet our requirements.  Great Results.  Expertise.  Good Value.

James Christie, Lifeplan

It happens.  One moment you are coping - the next, you need expert help, fast and well qualified.  A Delaney Marling Partnership Ltd business card was handed to us here in Hull.   Within 24 hours, though it was the weekend, we had contacted Simon Delaney.  We were listened to, effectively.  A promise was made to get back to us, and wonders of wonders...the promise was kept!  Both partners arrived promptly at the site to be surveyed.  They spent appropriate time, actually looking at the problems and then sat down and discussed the matter further, with us.  Their questions were pertinent, their comments relevant and their attitude professional. One was left with an entirely positive impression.

Mr & Mrs Hanson, Hull

Simon was always very approachable as a colleague and happy to help motivate and coach junior members of the the team. With his can do attitude and diligent approach to providing technical and informative advice to Clients; I managed to establish a strong foot hold on the fundamentals of the Building Surveying profession from Simon.

Gareth Allen, Colliers CRE

It is always a pleasure to work with Kevin because of his professionalism and likeable manner.

Simon White, SRW Building Services Ltd

Simon is a dedicated professional who takes his responsibilities very seriously and is driven to deliver high quality results that meet his customers needs. He is responsive to challenges and always works hard to come up with a solutions which is acceptable to all parties - even in very difficult situations! Simon is very open and honest in his approach even if the what he is saying may not be what you want to hear! He also has a great sense of humour and enjoys injecting fun into his working life. I hope we have the chance to work together in the future.
