Hello,
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to assist you.
You will need to create a simple Declaration of Trust confirming that in future you will hold the property as Joint tenants
http://www.lawontheweb.co.uk/Legal_Documents/Trusts_and_Property/Declaration_of_Trust_in_Relation_to_Land_of_Two_Coowners_Joint_Tenants
Then you will need to notify the Land Registry

I hope that this is of some assistance - please ask if you need further details
