To legally transfer ownership of real property, all owners must agree and execute a deed. That having been said, a person or entity with a POA of one of the owners could sign in their place if the POA gives them that right. Also, although possibly not applicable in this case, if owners of jointly held property cannot agree as to ownership matters, through  a "partition" action a court could force a sale.
