You need to start the transfer at the new host. You should get an email that asks you to enter the authorization code. Once entered successfully, you should get another message that says a request to transfer has been made, click here to cancel. If you click that link, then you can either cancel or approve the transfer. Homestead is not able to release the domain for you. Only you can approve the transfer. At this time, no request has been made that I can see.
