220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0790 Trusts. The transfer of real property into an irrevocable trust places legal title to the property in the trustee and equitable title thereto in the named beneficiary. Therefore, if the trust had been created prior to the adoption of article XIII A of the California Constitution, the beneficiary became the owner of the trust property at that time, and the subsequent distribution of the property by the trust to the beneficiary would be excluded from change in ownership. C 2/29/1988.
