Hi, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the process is not that straightforward and you would need to seek agreement from him to remove his name from the title and the mortgage as his name on the title is a legal interest. Initially he and the mortgage company need to agree to this. If there is agreement, a few application forms to the land registry can be completed and submitted to transfer title and it will be for the mortgage company to agree to release him and transfer the mortgage into only both your names - in the event that the mortgage company do not agree to remove his name you can attempt to remortgage once the title is changed.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
