Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Real Estate litigation attorney here to assist you.
The only way to transfer ownership of the property from one person to another is through a deed. You'll just have to decide how much interest you want to transfer to her.
Once you decide, you will simply issue a deed from you to you and your mother (designating the amount of interest) and have it notarized and recorded in the county land records.
Once the deed is recorded, she will receive tax benefits equal to her ownership interest.
