If you are using JSVGCanvas, make sure you set the document state:

canvas.setDocumentState(JSVGCanvas.ALWAYS_DYNAMIC);


If not using canvas, you'll need to boot the dom:

I have svg as shown below. Whenever I load this svg and try to get BBox of
its text it returns null. How to properly get the BBox?

Element eltText = document.getElementById("id3");
SVGRect svgRect = ((SVGOMTextElement)eltText).getBBox(); <-- returns null
