220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0649 Security Interest Transfers. A conveyance of real property by grant deed from individuals to a housing cooperative and a subsequent reconveyance by land contract secured by a deed of trust from the cooperative to the individuals are both rebuttably presumed to transfer the present beneficial interest in the property, resulting in changes in ownership. However, pursuant to Property Tax Rule 462.200(a), the presumption may be rebutted if, in the assessor's judgment, it is shown by clear and convincing evidence that the individuals intended to retain the present beneficial interest in the property, and that the grant deed transferred mere legal title to the cooperative as a part of a security transaction. C 12/5/2000.
