It is is a decade since I acquired my house in Henleaze. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title deeds. Is this a major issue?

Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Henleaze involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it is more problematic but is resolvable.
