It is a dozen years since I purchased my house in Greenford. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I can't track down my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be kept by the mortgage company or they may stored with the lawyers who acted in the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Greenford relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
