Can I buy a house for my kid and have them make the payments?

I won't be living in the house but I want to pay the deposit and fees and then they will make the monthly mortgage payments. Can i do that?

Depends on your loan terms and requirements. You will want to check with them as some loans require it to be your primary residence for a specified period of time.

More information needed and It depends on how you are buying the home, primary residence or investment property. You can also be a cosigner and/or gift funds to your kids and they purchase as their primary residence. Definitely talk to your lender about options and the best way to accomplish this purchase.
