Dear Sir / Madam,

Your parents ought to have surveyed and shortlisted the land site. The next step is to ascertain the title clearance of the property to ensure that there is no encumbrance for purchase, and the title is clear in all respects. You or your parents should thereafter directly deal with the Owner and obtain his / her signature on the title documents, Sale Deed, Property Card, etc., at the time of making the payment to the vendor are transferred in your name. Ensure that you get the land property transfer stamped and registered.

Yes, you can transfer monies to your parents A/c, and they in turn, can issue cheques to the seller in settlement. Since you are ensuring that all the title documents will be in your name, your parents are in no way, attracting any tax liability, since the income tax liability is on the seller and not the purchaser of the property.
