Trick is not to store things like "Smith Johnson Jack & Jill"
Store First Name, Last Name, Spouse Name, etc all in separate columns in your database.
Actually: use the relationship capabilities of mysql and store the owner(s) in a separate table from the property and reference them via an intermediate table (as one property can have multiple owners and one owner can own more than one property).
And if you're still learning: stop using the mysql interface, it's obsolete.
Use the mysqli (note the i) interface instead.
