Good afternoon. I will assist with your question - be aware this is an email not chat service therefore maybe delayed in replying.
who's name(s) on mortgage/deeds?
what did he pay you? how was it decided?
did you get the deposit written in agreement as to be returned to you?
did you have children with him? if so how old?
You say “your parents GAVE us GBP20,000 for a deposit.”
That implies it was given to you jointly.
If your husband is bought you out, then you have no financial interest in it and I don’t know why you think you would be entitled to the deposit back.
A need-to-know on what basis therefore you think you are entitled to be bought out of the property 7 years ago but then be entitled to some of this deposit?
I think there may be more to this. Thank you
