What Do House & Land Deeds Look Like

    I just want to find out if the below are the deeds of the house or are they something completely different? Land deeds are something similar?

    I've left out page 6 which is an A3 sized map.

    that is the folio which shows ownership and burdens

    the deeds don't look like anything they are a bundle of documents which contain any number of various documents

    eg family home declarations, old deeds of conveyance, leases, prior folios and deeds of transfer, contract for sale, requisitions on title, planning permissions NPPR, LPT, BER cert, letters from county council, to name a few.

    Are the deeds only kept by the family solicitor or should the family have a copy. Asking as there is a potential fair deal application on the horizon and the house/land deeds are a pre-requisite.

    Usually only kept by the solicitor or bank (mortgage provider). There are seldom copies kept by the family as it's often a large bunch of documents making up the title. If you need them, family solicitor is your first port of call.

    If the mortgage is paid off the bank will not want to hold on to the deeds. A solicitor might hold them (for a cost). Our deeds I have at home in a firepooof safe.

    ”Deeds” are effectively a dead letter at this stage where you have registered land unless it is a leasehold which it appears it might be from. 1(a).

    The solicitor has told my Mam that these are the deeds. So who am I to argue with him?

    Hoping they won't question this in the fair deals application.
