Buying a house with a Belgian husband
I need some advice. We are currently living and paying rent in my MIL's house. We are considering buying it before we ( my husband) inherits it. We need to get a mortgage to pay off part of the house but the other part is being given as a gift. The problem for me is that we will both have our names on the mortgage but as it's his mum gifting it ( part of it) the house will only have his name on the title. We have an appointment with a notary but was wondering if anyone had experience with this.
The bank has said that the notary will make a marriage contract that will insure that half goes to me if anything causes a divorce etc. My husband says it's just saving money from changing the names on the deeds when in fact the marriage contract will have the same outcome.
Thought please .
Thanks in advance
