It probably varies a bit house by house and solicitor by solicitor, but
when I looked into it 2 months ago the costs were,
£100 for the freehold, £450 for their solicitor (plus VAT), and then the
cost of our solicitor.

We would be interested in this but I wonder if it's a psychological matter.
It's perhaps a bit like not wanting to have any debts. Apart from that I'm
not sure what the planet will be like in 2800 let alone our neighbourhood.
I'd buy it for £50 but I'm sure the interested parties (Freeholder and
profession) will be voracious meat eaters (also bad for the planet) and
demand their kilo (pro european weight denomination) of flesh.

I'm revisiting the Freehold conversation as Geof and I have received an
unexpected letter today from Fairways Property Management asking us if we
wish to purchase the Freehold of our house on Endcliffe Glen Road. (We
have been wanting to do this for some time but there have been difficulties
tracing the Leaseholder.) It will involve paying the fee requested but
also paying for a solicitor from our side. We are happy to do this. We
wonder, though, if others have received the same letter and are interested
in buying the freehold of their properties. If so, perhaps we could hire a
solicitor as a group as this may reduce the fees for each householder.
