It is 10 years ago since I bought my property in Aston on Trent. Conveyancing solicitors have now been instructed on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they may be archived with the lawyers who oversaw the 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 solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Aston on Trent involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
