IMO, someone who expects to be on title and to receive benefits such as appreciation is not making a gift. I would guess that they are creating some kind of bass-ackwards, oral general partnership that is completely ill-defined and which will be a real mess, BWDIK?

Actually, they are going to have a lawyer draw up an agreement about the particulars of equity sharing, survivorship, etc.
