It is a dozen years since I acquired my house in Norton. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been retained on the sale but I am unable to find my deeds. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by the mortgage company or they may be archived with the lawyers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Norton relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
