220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0161 Easement. No change in ownership of real property occurs when an owner transfers the property to a city but retains an easement therein, creating a possessory interest. Property Tax rule 462(e) exempts an interest created by a reservation in an instrument deeding property to a tax exempt public entity. If the owner transferred the entire property to the city and the city then granted the easement to the owner, however, there would be a change in ownership under Revenue and Taxation Code section 61(b) and rule 462(e). C 8/12/1988.
