Can my partner remortgage without my permission?

Answered on 25 September 2016 by Nick Morrey

My partner wants to renew the mortgage in his sole name but keep my name on the deeds. Where do I stand with this? Can he sell the property from under me or do I have any say in the property?

Very simply, if you are listed as a registered owner then your partner will not be able to take a mortgage out in his sole name.
