How do I bank my savings for a down payment on a house?
I live in Canada am hoping you might be able to answer this
My parents had bought 2 lots one of which my sister built a house on. Since I didn't want to live in that town they decided to give me and my long-term boyfriend the property as a gift (apprx value: $40,000).
Should we leave the property in my parents name (they'd pay property taxes) and sell it when we want to buy a house OR sell it now and put it in the bank (we currently have a joint account)? We plan on buying within the next 3 years.
If I should put it in the bank:
--What type of account should I use? (Interest Savings, TFSA, Mutual Fund?)
--Could anyone such as creditors or child support programs gain access to this and take it from us?

Best to consult a lawyer or solicitor who works in this area to work out what the best option is and what the answers are to your questions, these areas are quite complicated so i doubt anyone here would be able to give reliable advice!
