(a) BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER – PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE
200.0068 Original Property. A man and a woman, each of whom owns a home and each of whom is otherwise eligible for Proposition 60 relief, marry. The wife rents out her house and moves into her husband's home. They intend to purchase another home and use the wife's house as a qualifying original property for transfer of base year value purposes. If they are unable to purchase a qualifying replacement property before the lapse of two years from the date the wife ceased to occupy her home, the wife must re-occupy her home as her principal residence to again establish it as a qualifying original property. She would have to present sufficient evidence to qualify the home for the homeowner's exemption for a period ending within two years of the purchase of the replacement dwelling. C 9/6/2001.
