1> At what price? fair market price?If so the tax ramifications would be the same as if it were unrelated parties. (ex: likely cap gains for the seller, mortgage points and interest deductions for the buyer)Low fair market value.2> Why purchase it? Is this DIY estate planning? If so - DON'T. Find out what's the best way to keep the most money in the family after she dies. (which may be to just have the house willed to him - ASK A LAWYER) It'll cost you a few hundred to have the lawyer explain the options, but if you make a mistake it can cost you thousands.She has no savings, no long-term care insurance. If she were to fall ill, we are afraid the house may be taken from him.Once again, I will suggest they talk to a lawyer. Not sure it will do any good, but I'll suggest it. Do you think it should be an estate lawyer or a tax lawyer?Thanks for your help. - Both.Caat
