Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the mortgage company or they could stored with the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Rochford involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
