What about the deeds?

Hi all, my mortgage is on it's last knockings, I owe about £700, it's with the halifax and I have the money to finish it now, but what happens about the deeds? I am on standard variable rate if it makes any difference, but at around £60 a month it doesn't bother me much. If I wait until it finishes I still have the keeping of the deeds to consider. What should I do?

    Mine are in a box upstairs. You don't actually need to keep the historic deeds unless you wish to. They are all kept electronically at the Land Registry.

    Congratulations, BTW!

    Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is the Book of British Birds, and you have a rough idea of what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology: Terry Eagleton
