    Hiya,

    So my parents are really controlling people and want me to transfer the student loans over to them to “look after” because I can’t be “trusted” with them. They think I will spend it all when I know it’s to cover rent, food, etc

    I was wondering if that is even possible and if I’m even allowed to give them that money? They want me to ask them every time I have to use it.

    It has to go into an account with your name in most of your circumstances. In that situation i think you should consider whether that's healthy for you and whether you can get out of the situation.
