    Simarc House Lease 14th Jun 17 at 9:49 PM
    Hi,

    I have obtained a quote to purchase our freehold for a house from Simarc.

    The question is do I need to involve a solicitor? If so any ideas on costs?

    Many thanks

    Barry

    If your neighbours are not using a solicitor surely you should be asking them how they will be sorting the legal issues and who will be checking the terms of the lease for any potential problems? It could be that one of them has legal expertise.
    As part of the purchase you will be required to pay the solicitors fees for the seller anyway.

    I used a solicitor when I purchased my freehold last year, his fees were £500 - but I did phone around for several quotes. If you decide to use a 'specialist' solicitor it will cost significantly more.
