Good for you for locating an investor who is willing to lend you the money to secure and rehab the property and then split the profits upon resale.
What I would suggest is to look int incorporating the property into a LLC and have the funds/agreement written in the company name. Another way to protect you but also good business sense so that way you get any writeoffs that will be part of this property.
Depending on what state you are in, you can either do the paperwork there or through Delaware or Nevada.
I hope this helps you some. By the way, what state are you in and how did you go about locating your investor?
Best of luck,
