Hello,

Are you married to your partner?

Thank you.

I would suggest that you enter into a post nuptial agreement with your partner so that you both agree who is entitled to what and that your partner will not have any claim over these 2 properties in your name.

See here for an idea of what a post nuptial agreement involves

Once this is done, you may then sign a declaration of trust saying that you hold these 2 properties on trust for your children, see here for what this involves

May I help further?
