If someone dies intestate how do you transfer title to their house to a beneficiary?

Question Details:

My husband's father has died with no Will. I understand in CA because there is no Will in place and provided there is no spouse (which there is not) that the estate is divided up between living children. My husband and his sister have agreed ,per their fathers wishes, that the home will go to my husband. We are currently living in his father's home and want to take ownership. How does my husband transfer his dads home into his name legally? What can we expect to happen with his father's estate now that he has passed?
