How to Change Ownership?

I have recently inherited a house and property for which I dont have ownership papers. My mother purchased the property from an individual. All I have is the original earnest money contract/seller financing contract and a warranty deed with vendors lein that has become absolute. The first problem is my mother has recently passed away, I am the sole heir to her estate, there was no will. The second problem is my mother never had ownership changed into her name, in other words she never applied or received a deed. I need to know how to go about getting ownership of this property changed to my name. I have paid taxes for this property for the current year and I have all of the tax reciepts from the years in which my mother paid the taxes. What steps do I need to take, to get this done?
