Also, If you've never bought a kit before.
the standard kit is
1 Snare Drum (with stand)
1 Hi-tom (to mount to kick drum)
1 Mid-tom ( to mount to kick drum)
1 Bass/Kick Drum (with kick pedal and 2 Tom mounting points)
1 High Hat (with stand)
1 Crash Cymbal (with Stand)
1 Ride Cymbal (with Stand)
Make sure that the shop Tunes all the skins before you leave with the kit and don't let anyone try to sell you more or less, unless your boy wants to play a bit of funk with a mountable Cowbell. If he listens to Metal, my guess would be you don't need the Cowbell.
And to practice in a house, once you have a kit, pack a duvet or a comforter into the kick drum. There are also pieces of felt that can be purchased to put over the skins to dampen the sound, I don't know what they are called though.
