Don’t worry too much. First there is a chance that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they may be archived with the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers.
