The old unregistered system of legal title to property (ie. by deeds) has been replaced by registered titles registered at the Land Registry. When any house is bought and sold now the title is registered at the Land Registry, if the property is unregistered the old deeds we be sent to the Land Registry to prove legal title. They are then "dematerialised" by the Land Registry (they take copies and then destroy the deeds).
The relevant details of the old deeds are noted against the registered title.
When any solicitor requires deduction of the legal title to a property all he need do in the case of registered property is to obtain official copies from the Land Registry.
Nothing to worry about.
