“The only real scope for the exercise of the court’s discretion, under section 49(2) of the Law of Property Act 1925, to order the return of a deposit, was when the purchaser of a property was unable to perform the contract; whereas, a purchaser would have the right to the return of the deposit when a vendor was unable to perform the contract.”
