Yes a joint mortgage.
Also the monies came via his mother's gift was via a house which has been re-mortgaged (to less than half its value) and my name is ***** ***** mortgage, 99% to him; 1% to me. This was necessary in order to obtain the mortgage.
To be clear, it would be a 'Tennants in Common' arrangement, Clare.
He will be making all the payments; my name is ***** ***** mortgage because this was the only way 'we'/he could release equity. The house is in his name. Many thanks.
Well my partner is making the payments himself - he has monies at his disposal from the gift from his mother. Currently there are two rental properties in his name - the aforementioned 'riingfenced' property plus one other and those rents go into his account.
