220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0740 Transferable Development Rights. In Mitsui Fudosan v. Los Angeles County (1990) 219 Cal.App.3d 525, the court held transferable development rights to be taxable real property interests which, when conveyed, result in a change in ownership requiring reappraisal. The property to which the rights were previously appurtenant should have its base year value reduced in the same proportion that the value of the transferred rights bore to the fair market value of the land and improvements from which they were transferred as of the date of the transfer. LTA 2/11/1991 (No. 91/12).
