A relative keeps a set of deeds in a safe in an outbuilding with other documents. He is due to get another set of deeds next year when another mortgage finishes. He has not made a copy of the first set yet. He is not keen on leaving either deeds with his solicitor because he is 70+ and likely to retire anytime. Is it recommended to keep deeds at home ? He is not keen on trusting a third party. Should he scan all the documents just in case. They are quite bulky and it would take hours to do. If there was a break in would burglars have any interest in deeds ?
