Our son is intending to own our farm. Could it be advantageous to him to buy a new whole life policy and pay the premiums on his 69 yr old father as a means to provide an inheritance for his siblings? He, of course, would deduct the policy's face amt from what he would owe us for the farm. I'm wondering if this would be a means to sell him the far m at a cost which he could afford. Would this cause adverse liablity to his parents?
