Tax benefits for home loan on jointly owned property

My husband and me are joint owners of an apartment and the sale deed does not mention any particular proportion of ownership. However, I wish to avail 25% tax benefit on the principal and interest paid towards the home loan and the rest 75% my husband wishes to claim. Since there is no proportion mentioned in the sale deed about ownership, can this be done? Or is it mandatory that the tax benefit be claimed in the proportion of 50-50% itself??

Please help
