Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!

This is a simple process for which you do not need to engage a lawyer. The owners simply need to sign a quit claim deed transferring title transferring title from themselves as joint tenants to themselves as tenants in common. The deed needs to be witnessed, notarized, and then recorded in the real property records of the city/county in which the property is located. If you need a template for a quit claim deed, let me know and I'll be happy to provide you one.
