Please ensure, that you have a correct 'Authorisation Code' associated with the domain, before initiating the transfer, otherwise it will fail.
Ensure that your respective domain does not have a lock-status (REGISTRAR-LOCK or HOLD). This can be seen in the WHOIS.
If the domain is locked, then the owner can demand that this be unlocked at the Registrar.
Initiate the transfer on time and not just shortly before the domain expires.
