I've purchased a house with a partner and signed the purchase-agreement with the builder. Now my partner is planing to leave the country. To protect myself financially is the signature on the purchase-agreement mean that he is on the tittle? Or is the tittle set when one signes off on the mortgage? I'd like to be protected so if they go after my partner for potential money I'd be protected as his name will not be on the title of the house? So they won't come to me for money as his name will not be on the house. Thoughts?
