Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.
Was the gift conditional upon anything?
Did they buy a property?
Then no, you are not entitled to it back.
It was so they could buy a property.
Unless you said the marriage had to last x years or if they split, you would get it back - then no.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
That makes no difference. Unless it was agreed in writing he would retain an interest.
Makes no difference at all
Does that assist?
I am. To answer your question again: Not entitled to it back. The gift was not conditional.
Does that clarify?
I don't know what the legal position your son Solicitor is stating.
Without knowing the legal basis of the opinion, then I can not say
Have a good weekend.
