I was getting ready to subdivide a little parcel on the mainland, and my surveyor needed my land title for something I'd closed on last summer. I emailed my attorney to ask about it, and she replied that she didn't know anything about it, that she thought I'd given it to another to attorney to do who'd left their firm. Luckily, I had some emails from her from last fall where she'd said the title should come in a week or so, and I reminded her of those. Then I got an email back saying she remembered, and she re-checked, but the title hadn't come yet. Then two days later she emailed back that it had! It's a bit of a circuitous process!
I guess the only lesson I can draw from this is that it's good to keep correspondence from everyone to help remind them if they forget about it.
