If all the children pooled together in the purchase of the property then the transfer of the property in the name of one son alone is in itself illegal unless expressly authorized by all the contributories. However, whether or not the other children can now stake a claim to the property depends on a number of facts such as when the transfer was made, by which instrument it was made, etc.

It will not become joint property as the same was purchased in the name of A. However, the other children may, subject to the conditions enumerated in my last reply, lay a claim to a share therein as they contributed monetarily in its purchase.
