Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help if I can. However, I am unclear about your question. Can you provide a little background information and perhaps clarify the question? Thank you.
Hi again. Thanks for getting back to me.
Q: The question is do I have to make the offer and someone else's name? other than my own (His request) in order for him to sell the house to me and put it in my name?
A: There is no law that would require you to make an offer in someone else's name.
Q: If so how will that affect the person's name (let's say my parents)? Will they have to pay taxes or be affected in anyway even though it's just for a few days until it's sold back to me and put in my name?
A: It depends on how the deal is made. If they actually take title in their name for a few days, then yes they will owe taxes. But if the offer is in their name, and you merely substitute in as the purchaser, then that would not create a tax liability for your parents. Of course, you'd better make sure that the contract allows a substitution.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
