200.0000 BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER
(a) BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER – PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE
200.0090 Purchase. The building of a new home on the front portion of a property because the old residence is not economical to repair would not qualify the new home as a replacement property. Revenue and Taxation Code section 69.5 contemplates a sale of land and structure and the obtaining of different property of equal or lesser value. There would also be the disqualifier that the new home would undoubtedly be more valuable than the old. C 12/22/1987.
