You can buy a house in your minor child’s name. However, this type of property cannot be sold without the permission of the court. However, you can form a trust with your child as the beneficiary so that there are no hassles selling the property and the property is transferred to their name once they turn 18 years. You or your spouse can act as trustees for this trust. Note that a minor cannot be a co-applicant on a Home Loan. So, you cannot buy a property using a Home Loan in your minor child’s name. Buying the house and then creating a trust might be the best option.
