220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0251 Holding Agreements. Under Property Tax Rule 462(k)(3), a holding agreement is an agreement between an owner of property and another entity whereby the owner conveys the property to the entity merely for the purpose of holding title. The rule contemplates a written agreement between the owner and entity, indicating that at all times the entity is subject to the terms of the agreement and is permitted to hold record title only. Lacking a written agreement, an owner may claim the existence of a constructive or resulting trust (Code of Civil Procedure section 1972), in which case he or she must establish the existence and the validity of such a trust.
