610.0000 NEWLY CONSTRUCTED PROPERTY
610.0003 Builder's Exclusion. New construction is deemed to be complete as of the date that the new construction is available for use by the owner, unless the owner does not intend to occupy or use the property and so notifies the assessor prior to, or within 30 days of commencement of construction. If the property is transferred prior to completion of the new construction, any succeeding owner who purchases the property prior to completion will qualify for the exclusion if the succeeding owner sends such notice to the assessor prior to, or within 30 days of that owner's commencement of construction. Thus, the new construction exclusion of Revenue and Taxation Code section 75.12 apply to each owner of the property. C 11/25/1997.
