I cleared my mortgage a few years ago. My bank posted out all the title documents to me.What actually happens when you make the final payments on a mortgage?
My bank wrote to me that they wanted the name of my solicitor to send the deeds to. As I didn't fancy that I just ignored the letter. I prefer the bank to mind them for me for free.
I think that might be like scanning a tenner and storing it in the cloud. From here:
Because the Registry of Deeds keeps a memorial or ROD application form summarising the change of ownership or mortgage, you can get a copy of this document to replace a lost or misplaced deed. A memorial or ROD application form does not have the same legal effect as a deed but provides secondary evidence of the contents of the deed. You can get a certified copy for €20 and a plain copy for €1 per page.
This is exactly what I did a few years ago. Received a large sheaf of papers which included all sorts of documentation. Helpfully the bank had categorised it into twenty or so different categories. I simply scanned each category and have twenty or so pdf's of my 'deeds'. Of course these are not the originals but are a useful copy that can't be lost (they are saved in multiple online and physical locations) and take up no physical space!
