We plan to get married in march 2021 and would like both our names down as owners of the house.

It is unlikely that the mortgage company will agree to only one name on the mortgage if you are both stated as owners on the title deeds.The lender would not want another person having an interest in the property that would potentially rank ahead of theirsKind regards

Hi, I don't quite understand. He will be my husband, I would continue to pay. Are you saying we would need a joint mortgage?
