Who is the executor of your father's Will/Estate?
The executors are myself, my brother and my mother.
Have you instructed solicitors to act on your behalf in the administration?
Do you hold the deeds to the property?
You're going to have to request the deeds from the bank. In order to register an unregistered absolute title at the Land Registry you will have to submit Form FR1 to them with the Epitome of Title. The Epitome is the chain of ownership from the "root" of the title to your father's ownership. It will consist of previous conveyances, assents, grants of probate from previously deceased owners.
It would be a lost easier for you to instruct a solicitor to assist in obtaining a grant of probate, collate the pre-registration deeds in to an epitome of title and then register the property in the name of your mother. If you are minded to attempt to do the administration of the estate yourself then I would still advise taking the deeds to a conveyancing solicitor to ask they register for you because it can get quite complicated.
