Hello - are you going to make a will as well?
If you had a mortgage, then it’s a whole different ballgame but with no mortgage, and presumably with no restrictions on the property (the title deeds will have them clearly noted as restrictions) it’s relatively straightforward although a solicitor is only going to charge you about £300 plus the land Registry fee if you didn’t want to do it yourself.
If you want to do it yourself you are obviously going to need the title deeds from the land registry which you can get here, cost 3 pounds https://eservices.landregistry.gov.uk/www/wps/portal/!ut/p/b1/04_SjzS0tDQwMTIxMjLXj9CPykssy0xPLMnMz0vMAfGjzOKNjSxMDA1NjDwsjM3MDTxN3dyNDUNMjQ1MjPWDU_P0c6McFQH3SLFU/
You can then complete forms TR1 and AP1 and ID1 and send the whole lot to the land registry with the appropriate fee which is based on the value of the property. There is no stamp duty to pay if no money is changing hands. Land registry form ID1 will need a passport size photograph attaching which has been certified by a solicitor as a true likeness.
If you Google “land registry form TR1” etc you will find lots of entries for the appropriate forms that you can download.
