Who We Are

About Us

Habilis (ˈha.bi.lis’) comes from habeō (“have, possess”) +‎ -ibilis, to mean “able, skilled”.

Habilis Surveyors was set up by Nick Bracegirdle with the origins of this word at its core. Having worked with a range of clients, we possess the passion and skills necessary to assist those people affected by life changing injuries, by providing them with suitable and accessible home environments, improving their quality of life and enhancing independence.

What People Say


I contacted Nick to help me support one of my clients to move into independent living. Nick was very informative, reliable and pleasant from the start and continues to be an integral part of my clients journey.

Nick is sensitive to the needs of my client, is swift to respond to all emails and calls and provides detailed, well written reports and recommendations to support the wider team.

After I had enlisted the support of Nick I have had further positive feedback from other healthcare professionals in my field. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nick and look forward to working with him on different projects in the future.

Nick.S – Clinical Case Manager, East Midlands

To date, I have been impressed by your unwavering dedication, understanding and patience, as well as your “can do” attitude, towards my client and their family. In addition to this, I compliment you on your ability to respond in a prompt fashion, to any queries or challenges that have arisen during this project. It has been a pleasure working with you, and I hope to work with you again in the future. I would definitely recommend you to the solicitors I work with, other clients and to my colleagues.

Laura.S – Senior Case Manager, Midlands

We used Nick Bracegirdle of Habilis Chartered Surveyors to assess an older property in a conservation area that we knew had problems. Nick reacted to our urgent need in a very timely manner. He was extremely thorough in his survey and kindly phoned us with a detailed assessment on the same day – prior to his written report. His feed back was jargon free, down to earth and highly professional. It helped us enormously and was worth every penny. We wouldn’t hesitate to commission Habilis on future projects and we would encourage others to do the same.

Nick deals with questions or issues quickly and always has the clients best interest. Nick is very organised and this has enabled my team to progress the project, rather than having to wait on decisions.
