220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0565 Probate. Title to a decedent's property usually passes to the heirs as of the date of death. If portions of a property are devised to each of several heirs, each interest would be separately appraised as of the date of death and not at a later time when the heirs cause a subdivision map to be filed. If the property were transferred to creditors rather than to heirs, the change in ownership and reappraisal should be as of the date the creditors took title. Increases in value between the decedent's death and the transfer to the creditors would be included in the reappraised value. C 12/6/1984.
