    I have been forced into buying a property with another person because I wasn't able to secure mortgage by myself. The lawyer involved isn't too trustworthy either. I know, major red flags. The other person is in a position to fake my identity easily.

    Could I please know how best I can make sure no fraud happens.

    Also, is there a way I can find out if the other person tries to take out a loan/mortgage using our property as leverage to get loan approved. Thank you.

    Hope my question makes sense.

    This scenario begs the question why you would want to deal with people who you are suspicious of?

    I assume that the deeds are in joint names? If you are really afraid of ID fraud you will need to speak to a "better" lawyer and see what they advise. This has disaster waiting to happen written all over it.

    Investments can be stressful enough without wondering if/when you will be defrauded by your investment partner. You said it - red flags, stay away.
