Hi

It is best to refinance the property in your name, if you want to take over the responsibility of the mortgage. It'll put your name on the mortgage while taking your father's name off it. If the mortgage is assumable, you can assume the loan as well. You can also check with your lender the option of a novation agreement to remove your dad from the mortgage. However, you need to discuss these options with your lender as you need their approval to assume the loan or to do a novation.
