If you are buying then this is the name of your mortgage lender helping you fund the purchase. If you already own the property it is the name of your mortgage lender who has a registered charge over your property.

The property is held on trust by the legal owner and the non-legal owners have no beneficial interest in the property.

The non-legal owners can state they have a beneficial interest in the property, however this may have tax implications. The parties should speak to a tax specialist for advice on this - we have an accountant we can introduce to you if you require.
A Joint Mortgage Sole Proprietor arrangement can have second home stamp duty implications even if some of the joint owners aren't named on the legal title.

HMRC states:
"Where an individual (who is not a spouse or civil partner of another purchaser) is one of the purchasers of a dwelling but they will have absolutely no beneficial interest in the property, they will not be treated as a joint purchaser of that dwelling. This would have to be evidenced in writing. Any future entitlement to capital proceeds from the sale of the property, to income or to occupy the property would mean that they do have a beneficial interest."

The deed of trust confirms that the non-legal owner has no entitlement to future proceeds and no legal right to reside at the property in accordance with the HMRC requirements for evidencing that the non-legal owner has no beneficial interest in the property for second home stamp duty purposes.

You should obtain tax advice from a specialist.
