Dear Concerned,

Get a latest CERTIFIED copy of the property yourself from the Registrar office and post that consider buying. Beofre buying through your lawyer give a NOTICE in daily newspaper about the intention to purchase the property and do mention that the original papers are lost. This will take care of any misuse of the original papers.

When you get this property registered on your name the new papers will be valid original documents.

Best of luck
