DLP Surveyors can trace its roots as a South Wales-based firm of chartered surveyors back as far as 1972 upon the formation of the David Little Partnership. The practice subsequently changed its status to a limited company in 2004 and with it a name change to DLP Surveyors.

We are south Wales based independent chartered surveyors. Our aim is to deliver professional quality commercial and residential property advice based upon our in-depth local and regional knowledge. We offer professional expertise across a wide range of commercial and residential property disciplines including agency, development, investment, valuation and professional work. 

We are qualified to offer Energy Performance Certificates for both domestic and non-domestic properties. We also have a dedicated asbestos survey and management department.

Our success is built on our professionalism and we are committed to maintaining rigorous standards. We are members of and are regulated by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the pre-eminent organisation in the world for professionals in property.
