220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0010 Air Rights. A change in ownership of real property occurs pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code section 60 upon the transfer of air rights located directly above the land surface which establishes their legal description. Air rights are considered real property by Property Tax Rule 124, which classifies them as land; a transfer of a present fee interest in air rights separate from the surface rights is legally possible since such rights are real property and part of land; and there should be a reappraisal of that portion of the land (air rights) that changes ownership. LTA 7/3/1986 (No. 86/50).
