Hello my name is Ross and I can help with this matter.
What you will want to do is send a correspondence to your husband explaining that as you jointly own the flat then you are entitled to 50% share of the profit from the letting (not 50% of the rent but the profit). You will want to advise him to pay it into any account of your choosing. If he does not do this then it would be an idea to instruct a solicitor to write a letter to him and hopefully this will be enough if your own letter does not work. This usually does the trick. However, if he ignores everything then in reality you would have to look at instructing a solicitor to contact your husband and look at getting some kind of separation agreements in place, this would cover a lot more than just the rent from the flat. However, worst case scenario, if you cannot agree with things in anyway, you would had to go to a court and a judge would ultimately make a decision on who is to pay what to whom. However, this sort of thing is way down the line, and not quite as common as you would think. But do start of small with your own letter stating that you will instruct a lawyer if he doesn't agree then if needed have a legal letter written to him. I appreciate that these types of situations can be difficult and I sincerely hope you get it sorted sooner rather than later.
