Change in Ownership

The Revenue and Taxation Code defines change in ownership as “a transfer of a present interest in real property, including the beneficial use thereof, the value of which is substantially equal to the value of the fee interest”.

However, either by legislation or voter initiative, several types of transfers are excluded from reassessment. Listed below are those most commonly occurring. Please contact the Assessor’s Office for additional information regarding change in ownership.




Domestic Partnership

Effective with transfers occurring on or after January 1, 2006, any transfer between registered domestic partners is excluded from reassessment.
