Laying laminate over tiles floor

I have purchased laminate flooring for my kitchen but not sure of the best way to install over a tiled floor. We don't want to lift up the tiles as we plan to sell the property as they look flat/level although there is a slight dip in the utility room by 0.2cm and we plan to place the laminate all the way through. Should I use an overlay first? the flooring will be slightly raised up from the living room therefore I would need a solution to join the two rooms ie skirting. Thanks

Hey, no issue laying over tile but use a fibreboard underlay (easy and cheap to get). This will absorb issues. Use a step down edge trim available at flooring company or diy store. Easy job :-) Good Luck
