Your question raises additional questions including "how was the property titled?" Depending on how it was titled, you may not need to take any action to have 100% ownership and control over the property, which would permit you to convey it to your mother. I would have to review the deed and discuss the facts and ossible issues with you to provide you with meaningful guidance on this matter. My office number is 305-424-0236. Please call me at your convenience.

If the property was titled jointly, with right of survivorship, you are the owner and can deed it out. If not, you will need to probate the decedent's estate.
