Well, I do not have any advice specific to your situation; however, my husband’s employment situation was complicated (due to opening a new location and him being promoted to run that location), so it ended up being eaiser putting the mortgage in just my name.  Not sure if that is something that will work for you or not, but just a suggestion.

Good luck!!

It might be worth posting this in the International section. I know there are a few other Aussie bees, but not that many – they might have a better chance of seeing this there? Or if “Australia bees” or something is in the title? From what I understand, there are some pretty significant differences in terminology and process there vs the US, where most Bees are located. For example, “sole trader” is not a term used here.
