As long as the title is registered the details of your ownership will be recorded by HMLR under a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and secure up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for £20 inclusive of VAT.
