220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0348 Leases. A lessee's assignment of a land lease on property eligible for the homeowner's exemption constitutes a change in ownership since Revenue and Taxation Code sections 61(c)(2) and 62(g) contain conclusive presumptions that the lessee has the right to renew its lease for an additional term of at least 35 years, whether or not that renewal option exists in any contract or agreement. Due to these same conclusive presumptions, however, the sale of the lessor's interest in taxable real property subject to such a land lease is not a change in ownership. C 1/24/1997.
