"Make sure you know which user you want to transfer the repository to before you begin. Then, do the following:

  1. Log into Bitbucket using the account that owns the repository.
    This is the user the repository is transferring from.
  2. Go to the repository you want to transfer.
  3. Go to the repository's settings.
  4. Select Transfer repository from the left-side menu.
    The system opens the Transfer repository page:
  5. Enter the Username of the individual or team account you want to transfer to.

  6. Press Transfer repository.
    The Bitbucket server sends the user or team account a message containing a transfer request. The message goes to both the user's Bitbucket inbox and the external email inbox."

The admins of the team account then has to log in and accept the transfer.

when I created the Team I never created an account. So I am not sure how to accept the transfer, or how to associate the Team with a new user... should it be associated with the User used to create the team?

I see this post is old and I wonder if the Web UI has changed ever since because I can't find "Transfer repository". What now?

EDIT: I just found it. We Need to do another step before #4:
3.5 Select "Repository Details".

fuck, transfer request not show for new owner!!!
