It is 10 years ago since I bought my home in Kimbolton. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be registered 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. Most conveyancing in Kimbolton involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
