It is is a decade since I bought my home in Bristol. Conveyancing lawyers have now been instructed on the sale but I can't track down the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by the lender or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Bristol relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.
