220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0466 Partition. When co-owners of acreage are required by subdivision law to subdivide their acreage before they can partition it, the act of subdividing the property should be ignored when determining whether each owner has received an interest proportional to the interest previously held in the acreage. The transfers of interests in the subdivided lots should not result in reappraisals based on a conclusion that transfers in separate lots have occurred rather than a partition of the acreage. Additionally, the value of improvements put in place by the recipient of a particular lot should be excluded from the valuation of the land when determining the proportionality of the land values before and after the partition. C 5/9/1986.
