Bath is a city and World Heritage site situated in the southwest of England. The city is named after the Roman public baths which were constructed almost 2000 years ago and in the Georgian era the city became a popular spa town as the hot springs were believed to have restorative properties. Although famed for its Roman origins, much of Bath’s historical architecture is more modern. Bath Abbey dates back to at least the Norman Conquest and its spire stands out over the city’s skyline. Alternatively Bath has many parks and outdoor spaces to explore, the most famous of which being the Royal Victoria Park which was opened in 1830 by a young Queen Victoria. With so much going on, the city is clearly an attractive place to live and in the last year alone reallymoving.com and our RICS regulated Chartered Surveyors have helped over 500 people relocate to the city of Bath.
As Bath is situated close to the Atlantic, the ocean significantly impacts the city’s weather. Depressions, or areas of low atmospheric pressure, form over the Atlantic and drive damp, cloudy weather towards Bath. This contributes to Bath’s excessive moisture build up which can cause structural damage and timber decay if the damp is absorbed through the floors or walls into the fabric of a property. This is one reason that reallymoving.com strongly recommends the services of our professional Chartered Surveyors as the Building Survey they provide will detail any damages to your prospective property, including damages caused by Bath’s relatively high levels of moisture.
With reallymoving.com you can compare quotes from up to four local Chartered Surveyors to ensure you get the best deal possible on home surveys. With their help you can be sure that your move to Bath will not be plagued by any unforeseen damages, costs or delays. This will leave you free to relax and enjoy Bath’s many interesting and unique attractions.
