Hi, we have to go through the entire document to give clear opinion, but one thing is sure No one can't enter into contract when a person is minor and it is clearly barred by law.
dont purchase the property . the fact that bank rejected your loan application should open your eyes to risks involved in purchase of such a property .
Was the relinquishment deed made by the guardian of the minor before selling the property to you? The property of a minor cannot be disposed of in this manner. Get the agreement perused by your lawyer to ascertain if the ownership rights will stand transferred to you or not.
