    I bought a house before I met my husband. We havent lived there for over five years, we rent it out and rent somewhere else. We plan to try for a mortgage soon. My husband wouldn't qualify for a mortgage on his own so it will be a joint application. I know I'm probably grasping at straws here but would it be possible for the bank to put my husband down as the sole owner on the deeds and therefore would we qualify for the break? Revenue know we are married

    No is the simple answer to that.
