Me and my fiance bought a house last year, but we are filing separately. On the 1098 for our home loan, the document only shows his SSN but both names. How do we split?

Since you were both owners, and both listed on the mortgage, you can split the mortgage interest deductions based on the amount each of you paid.  Just be sure that combined, you don't claim more than the total.  You also can split the property tax deduction.
