I would advise very strongly against giving any ground on ownership of the property. You have no idea what might happen if they decide to leave their share of it somewhere else in their will.
You are the sole owner of the property – and I would keep it that way because anything else will start to introduce further complications and ambiguities – and at the end of the day the only beneficiary will be the solicitor. Imagine if your parents became part owners and then continued in litigation against you and started incurring costs which they were unable to satisfy – the next thing that will happen will be that the solicitor start to take action against the property as being your parents only asset and you will then be fighting possession proceedings brought by the solicitor to pay off his feet.
I don't think there's much more we can say on this

Thank you BankFodder, this is such a great community on here!
I am pleased to read this, as the 28 day lurking over me has been causing a lot of anxiety!
Nobody is trying to trick your parents. On the basis of what you have said, you bought the house quite legitimately a long time ago and it's a bit of a mystery as to why your parents are becoming concerned about it all now. As I have already said, if there is any issue about money that you owe then this is a separate matter and you should deal with that separately but it has nothing to do with the house as far as I can see.
If only I could make them understand this. My parents are very much of the ‘world is against us’ mindset and I know this because I used to be in then circle and the same. My mum has made comments about how I have changed, and this is probably a lot to do with it. I am no longer their child who they can control and ask them which decision I should make, there is probably an element of this in there.
One thing which has just come to mind, about two months ago my parents had a break in at their home. Lived there over 40 years and nothing ever like this. It makes me think has this triggered something 😕
I had a google on adding someone to a deed, as my dad has said yesterday, but it ultimately gives them a level of control and makes no sense!
