220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0338 Leases. Property subject to a lease (with options to extend) for a period in excess of 35 years does not undergo a change in ownership when the right to extend is exercised. Further, a lease agreement contained in several documents when restated in a single document does not result in a change in ownership if the lease is not terminated. Upon receipt of a copy of the restated lease agreement, the assessor may request a change in ownership statement, and if one is not received, he or she may impose the Revenue and Taxation Code section 482 penalty, notwithstanding a change in ownership has not occurred. C 11/18/1985.
