Thanks for your question and good afternoon.The owner here(grantor) can do this by a quitclaim deed signed by the grantor and filed in the real property records of the county where the property is located.Once this has been done the property is in your name and you become the legal owner.The quitclaim deed is returned to you for your files once it is recorded.The taxes will also be transferred as well since you are now the legal owner.
Here are the forms to do so.
