At James Aldridge we are an independent Partnership of Chartered Surveyors established over 25 years. All of our surveyors are qualified RICS Members who are living and working in East Anglia.
We specialise in surveys of both residential and commercial properties. In particular, RICS Level 1 & 2 Home Survey Reports, Valuations and RICS Level 3 Home Survey Reports (Building/Structural Surveys). Market Valuations are undertaken for all purposes.
