This currently depends on whether or not the app has any paid resources associated with it.

For an app with no paid resources, you can use "heroku sharing:transfer" from the command line to transfer the app to a new owner.

For an app with paid resources, you have two options.

1) Remove all paid resources, transfer the app like a free app, then have the new owner re-add the paid resources.

2) Both the old and new owners should file a support tickets at http://support.heroku.com authorizing the transfer and with the new owner accepting charges for the app.
