I live in the UK. My partner and I own a house, but at the moment the mortgage is in his name and only his name appears on the house deeds. The reason why the mortgage was not in joint names initially is because I was unemployed at the time of applying.

I have contacted several solicitors to ask if I may add my name to the house deeds without being added to the mortgage (this is the way I would prefer to do it). Most say this is not possible, few say that it can be done.

Could you please let me know who is correct? Can my name be added to the deeds without agreement from the mortgage company (and my name being added to the mortgage)?

Thank you so much for your help.
