Should I claim a mortgage credit for a house that I am on the mortgage for, but I do not pay the mortgage for it?

My daughter and her fiance purchased a home in 2017, but I had to be added to the mortgage because my daughter had lost her job a month before closing. Currently, the mortgage is in my name and her fiance's name but they make all the mortgage payments and they also payed the down payment. So, do I need to claim the mortgage interest on my taxes or only her fiance?

You do not put the interest or tax payments on the home due to you not paying them. 

If the fiancee paid them and is also on the mortgage and title of the property , they would put these on their return.
