Hi, thank you for your question. As you will be joint owners on the property it is likely that the mortgage company will not accept only him taken out a mortgage and would want you both to be jointly liable for the mortgage as you would own the property jointly.
In relation to holding the property you should consider whether you want to hold it as tenants in common or joint tenants. As joint tenants if either of you die the property automatically passes to the other and cannot be passed down as inheritance, whereas with tenants in common you can own unequal shares and each person is free to bequeath their share as they wish.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
