Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
May I confirm with you that your property is registered at the Land Registry? This will almost certainly be the case if you purchased or remortgage your property at any time in the last 20-25 years.
Thank you. On that basis what you have been told is correct. The Land Registration Act operated to "dematerialise" title deeds meaning that the computer electronic record is now your title and not the paper deeds. The old title deeds are now no longer anything more than an historic record. That being said you may still want to keep them if they exist as a keepsake and very occasionally, though this is very rare, they can come in useful if a document has not been produced on first registration of the property at the Land Registry, one can sometimes find it in the old bundle of title deeds. However this last point really should not concern you - this happens very very rarely so is highly unlikely to be relevant to you.
Subject as above there is no need for you to have any physical title deeds any longer in order to prove your title.
