Thanks for your question.
You will have to prepared a TR1 transfer deed and complete it. You can download it from the Land Regsitry link I'll give you in a minute.
This should be submitted to the Land Registry office dealing with the title of the property along with a completed form AP1 (which you can also download from the link):-
If you do not know the title number to the property then you can pay £4.00 to download a copy of the register from the following site, it will also note the land registry office dealing with the property:-
Needless to say your father must consent and sign the transfer form.
If the transfer is for no money then you should state that in the transfer and you would not have to submit a return form to HMRC in respect of stamp duty.
If you have any questions on the completion of the forms then you should call the Land Registry's customer services number, they are very helpful
