The answer may surprise you. Its human nature to want to keep the original of everything in your records. Especially, on a big investment like your home. But, the reality is, technology is so far advanced that your original deed is recorded in the public records. You can always get a certified copy of that deed at any point in time.

Plus, you have title insurance. Title insurance makes reference to that recorded date, same protection. When we take in a new file, we never ask for the original deed. We go into the public records, we get the prior title policy. Title is examined and closed.
