    In 50/50 partnerships like your example with your friends, where someone else provides the funds for the down payment as a silent partner while you manage and handle everything with the property, is the loan generally a joint loan between the two of you or in their name only?

      Hey Brian,

      Thanks for the comment!

      So, in the case with my friends, the loan was in JUST my partners name, but the title to the property (the deed) was in both names. Not all banks will allow this, but some do. It’s really not a problem for the bank to do this (they get the same security either way) but trying to convince a bank to do anything outside the box is always fun 🙂

      Hope that helps!
