220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0625 Sale and Leaseback Transactions. If an owner of real property sells it and leases it back for a period of more than 35 years, he is treated as the property owner for change in ownership purposes. Should the original owner, now lessee, repurchase the property while there is still 35 or more years remaining on the lease, no change in ownership occurs. He merely retrieves legal title to property he is considered to already own for change in ownership purposes. C 3/23/1987; C 5/12/1987.
