Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
I am afraid a minor is not legally entitled to purchase a property and therefore can't be registered as the owner of a property at the Land Registry.
Therefore, the property would have to be purchased in the name of the guardian. For belts and braces, a separate Trust Deed should also be drawn up to confirm that the guardian is holding the property on trust for the minor. The Solicitor acting on the purchase would be able to prepare this.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.
Can I assist you any further?
