    Does Google allow selling a YouTube channel. I plan to set up a channel in educational niche and promote own products through the channel. Then sell the complete business along with the YouTube channel. Will there be any legal problem with this ?

    I don't think so. Never heard of any kind of legal issues regarding that

    In fact, YouTube allows "brand accounts" under one main email. They can be pushed to a different email right on YouTube/Google like any other business asset.

    How big is your YouTube channel?
    I was actually asking,how will you find the buyer for it?
    From forum?
    Where you will list it for sale?

    If you have an online business making decent monthly income, it is not hard to find a buyer. You can sell through a broker.

    Officially, Google does not allow selling your Youtube channel according to their TOS:

    Section 4D: You agree not to use the Service for any of the following commercial uses unless you obtain YouTube's prior written approval:
    the sale of access to the Service;

    It's definitely against TOS as is selling twitter accounts, instas, etc. but people still do it and build businesses on it. it's not illegal, just against TOS and Google likely won't be able to police it
