    I assume you mean you've bought/sold a house and paid a deposit but settlement has not yet been finalised.

    28 days, BUT there are few things that can stop this from happening. Best talk to your conveyancer/solicitor about the various BUTs.

    Ok, thank you

    It's all good now. The new owners' lawyer was trying to stop it. But he can't,so he is releasing the deposit in a couple of days.
