Thanks for yor question.
There is nothing preventing the solicitor dealing with your conveyancing from giving one half of the conveyancing prceeds to you and the other half to your husband provided you are in agreement and give him specific instructions on the matter. Make sure you let the solicitor know as soon as possible that you require your 50% to be held separately.
You should bear in mind that if you were to divorce your husband and depending on the length of the marriage, the age of the children and whether they are living with you may be entitled to more than 50% of the matrimonial assets (which obviously includes the house). If you change your mind about seeking a greater amount then it would e a lttle problematic seeking to revisit it at a later date. Some spouse who are separated but not divorced choose to execute a separation agreement to outline what is to happen to their matrimonial assets upon separation but before they actually divorce, it's not a pre-requisite to separation but some couples think it gives them clarity and therefore ess likely to be disputed in the future.
