220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0583 Record Title. The title presumptions of Evidence Code section 662 and Property Tax Rule 462.200(b) may only be overcome by clear and convincing evidence. Although a conveyance of land is absolute in its terms, and on its face purports to convey an estate in fee, it may nevertheless be shown that the land is held by the grantee in trust; and the terms of such trust may be shown by oral testimony. Similarly, establishment of a holding agreement, which requires the existence of a written agreement, is sufficient to overcome the presumptions. C 3/8/2000.
