1. Firstly, a solicitor can only hold client monies according to the terms upon which these monies were given to him. Accordingly, if it was agreed that the monies were to be held on a joint deposit receipt account, then that it how they should be held. You can take a summary legal action against the solicitor to compel him to hold the monies according to the terms of the trust arrangement upon which they are going to be held. A solicitor is an officer of the court so the court has an inherent jurisdiction to order a solicitor to do what is required. Accordingly, you should get yourself a different solicitor and cause him to issue summary proceedings against this solicitor who is in default. Be aware that a solicitor no longer has to account to a client for interest on client monies held unless this has been agreed with the client. Given there has been a eight year lapse of time, you should also consider what should happen to the monies in future rather than leaving them still with the solicitor after eight years.
2. That was a breach of the solicitor's retainer and you can sue him for it.
