If you wish to transfer the title to the property to your sister and it is currently in your sole name with a mortgage then you will either need to pay off the mortgage and transfer it and your sister obtain a mortgage if required or alternatively you will need to get your mortgage lenders consent to your sister taking over the mortgage obligations and then a solicitor will be able to attend to the title transfer.
