It is 10 years ago since I bought my house in Greater Manchester. Conveyancing solicitors have now been instructed on the sale but I am unable to locate my title documents. Is this a problem?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Greater Manchester relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
