    My question is:

    'I have sent you a scanned copy of property papers' or '... scanned copies of property papers'. Which one is correct?

    Thanks and regards.
    I have changed your thread title.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    Use 'scanned copies'.

    If you send a single copy of a number of pages, I would use the singular.- a scan/a scanned copy of the property papers. I would use copies when I sent more than one copy of each page.
