Hi thank you fro your message, to transfer the land to the beneficiary you will need to transfer ownership to the surviving owner and a beneficiary, you'll need to complete:

form TR1 - Registered title(s): whole transfer which you can see here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/registered-titles-whole-transfer-tr1
form AP1 - Change the register: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/change-the-register-ap1
And send a certified copy of evidence of death. This can be either:

a grant of probate
death certificate
letters of administration
a court order

If you want to submit this application yourself, everyone involved needs to have their identity verified.You can do this at a HM Land Registry office or by going to a solicitor. HM Land registry do not

charge a fee to verify identity but a solicitor may. If you want to go to a HM Land Registry office, you'll need to make an appointment. Everyone who needs to have their identity verified must come to the same appointment.

You'll need to bring:

the completed forms and documents for this application
a completed identity form ID1 for each person: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/verify-identity-citizen-id1
a passport-sized photograph taken in the last 3 months for each person
You must submit the application and have your identity verified at the same appointment.
