If you inherited the house via your father's Will, then the executor for his estate should sign a deed of distribution which would indicate that you are the new owner. The deed should then be recorded in the County where the house is located.

I agree with Jon. Since it is an estate distribution, the Deed should be an Executor's Deed and the recited consideration should be nominal so no Realty Transfer Fee is incurred. I usually show the consideration as being $10.00. Additionally, you should receive a Release and Refunding Bondto be signed by you and notarized, acknowledging that you got the Deed, that needs to be filed with the Surrogate handling the estate.
