Thanks for your question and good morning.You can leave it to your grandson in your will in trust.You would need to name someone as trustee of the property for the benefit of your grandson.You should consider a local lawyer to set this up properly within the will.This is certainly possible.Again you will need to name someone here say the son or someone else you trust as executor and trustee int he will.The lawyer would prepare this will to make sure your last wishes are carried out to keep the property in the family and pass it to the grandson.Certainly it is possible to do so here with some estate planning.You seem to have thought this out very carefully.I do not see any cons here assuming you name a trustee for the property within your will until the grandson is of age.The property can then pass to him directly.You can locate an estate planning lawyer here through your state bar lawyer referral
