Documents on sale of house property

On closing the deal on selling my house property, what documents should I keep regarding the transaction? Should they be originals and certified or are photocopies OK? The implications I am looking are as proof for tax filing  as well as proof of transaction. When should I demand this document - on agreement or registry of house.

Would the property dealer provide these documents automatically or I need to ask for them.
