I dont believe there is a standard practice, although all firms I have known keep a deeds register, which lists documents held for each client. This is a requirement of good practice, and the Lawyers and Conveyencers Rules. As for recepts going into storage, that is not usually done, but as there is a requirement to keep a register of the documents, when they are removed the receipt shows this. Title deeds are now entirely electronic, but wills and deeds are still paper and important and should be recordede in the register.
I hope this helps
