    buying a PPOR.

    Whose name.
    My partner earns more than I do, but for PPOR tax deductions not even relevant.

    Any reason why we would NOT buy in joint names?

    Yep

    The are many borrowing models for clients that want to build larger portfolios where they may be better off to initially exhaust the borrow cap of each partner separately.

    Sometimes if one person is in a professional where likelihood of litigation is high, the choice might be made to put assets in the name of the other person.

    This can be a good idea but those assets are Not necessarily safe from creditors.

    It comes down to servicability and your future plans as well. your broker can confirm the servicability part. In similar situation looking to buy ppor and contemplating the idea of having both spouses on loan and high income earner on title. so at least in this case if ppor becomes IP down the track or on further investment equity release... max gearing benefits are extracted by high income earner being on title.
