Property Tax Annotations
220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0395 Lot Line Adjustments. Mutual deeds executed by neighbors to alter a common boundary and, therefore, place an accidentally, but improperly, located structure on land owned by the structure's owner and to compensate the other owner with an equivalent area of land results in a change in ownership of each property conveyed.
While Revenue and Taxation Code section 62(e), formerly 62(l), excludes from change in ownership transfers intended to correct or reform a deed to express the original intentions of the parties, that exclusion is inapplicable when there is no deed ambiguity but rather, an intentional execution of deeds to accomplish a lot line adjustment. C 3/12/1987.
