200.0000 BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER
(a) BASE YEAR VALUE TRANSFER – PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE
200.0130 Timing. The property tax relief granted by Revenue and Taxation Code section 69.5 is available in differing degrees depending on when the replacement property is purchased. If the replacement property is purchased prior to the sale date of the original property, the former must be of equal or lesser value to qualify for relief. The sale date of each property is rebuttably presumed (Property Tax Rule 462(n)) to be the date each deed was recorded. The presumption may be overcome by a factual showing that on some earlier date all escrow conditions had been fulfilled so that either party could obtain judicial enforcement of the agreement.
