It is is a decade since I purchased my home in Barnet. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to track down the deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with the lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers.
