We cannot know from here what some unknown real estate attorney might charge for a deed, and it's not clear whether the probate case was actually closed. I'd check with a real estate attorney as to the question of whether the will itself may act as a transfer document in your state. Even if it won't, preparing a deed to sign the property from the estate over to you and your mother shouldn't cost a lot of money.
"I am trying to do this cheap as my Mom is elderly and I am disabled so don't want to spend alot. "
Technically, it's an expense that could have been covered by the estate, but you don't say whether the real property was the only asset.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
