Thanks for your question which has been forward to me as a Scots lawyer. You should ensure that the title to the property is transferred to the two of you and to the survivor. That will ensure that there are no taxes to be paid. If you have to go into care and your friend owns the other half of the house then you can't be asked to sell it.
