ok thanks. in reply to your questions then (1) I am afraid the way the site doesn't allow us to access documents for you. however you can get a copy of your title deeds from the land registry buy paying a small fee. if you go here you can download them:-

(2) losing the documents is not fatal, the evidence of your ownership can be found in the site above

(3) The information from the land registry will say "The Freehold land...." or Leasehold land ...." as one of the first lines under Part A - Property Register of the document you will download
