Second charge trust

I have a question about second charge trust on a property.

Let’s say a friend or a member of a family lends you money to buy a property out right and a second charge trust was set up.
And the trust stipulates that they get back the minimum of they invested or the market value of the property.
The title deed is under your name.
And in the future, lets say you go through a messy divorce.
Would the trust protect from the house going to the partner?

Sorry, i meant first charge if no mortgage is required on the property.

Never heard of a thing called a second charge trust before.

Sounds like a bare trust to me. If it's written down, then it can't be touched in the divorce.
