It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in Eastbourne. Conveyancing solicitors have just been instructed on the sale but I am unable to find my deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Eastbourne relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
