Hello for clarification - why has he not applied to the Land Registry for copies?
Is the property registered at the Land Registry? If it is, you can get the title deeds online for 3 pounds the deed and 3 pounds the plan..online ..in seconds.
If it is not registered at the Land Registry and the preregistration title deeds bundle has been lost, then it’s a job and a half to get the property registered but it can be done. It’s not particularly quick and it’s not cheap but if the solicitor has lost the deeds, it’s something which he should be picking up for you.
Depending on how long you have owned the property, it could possibly have been subject to automatic registration so I’m not exactly certain what it is that been lost.
