Section 25220

25220. Recorded land use restrictions. ( a) The department shall notify the planning and building department of each city, county, or regional council of governments of any recorded land use restriction imposed within the jurisdiction of the local agency pursuant to the former Section 25229, 25230, or 25398.7, as those sections read prior to the effective date of this article, or Section 25202.5, 25221, or 25355.5. Upon receiving this notification, the planning and building department shall do both of the following:

(1) File all recorded land use restrictions in the property files of the city, county, or regional council of government.

(2) Require that a person requesting a land use that differs from those filed land use restrictions on the property apply to the department for a variance or a removal of the land use restrictions pursuant to Section 25223 or 25224.

(b) A planning and building department of a city, county, or regional council of governments may assess a property owner a reasonable fee to cover the costs of taking the actions required by subdivision (a). For purposes of this subdivision, "property owner" does not include a person who holds evidence of ownership solely to protect a security interest in the property, unless the person participates, or has a legal right to participate, in the management of the property.

(c) The department shall maintain a list of all recorded land use restrictions, including deed restrictions, recorded pursuant to the former Sections 25229, 25230, and 25398.7, as those sections read prior to the effective date of this article, and Sections 25202.5, 25221, and 25355.5. The list shall, at a minimum, provide the street address, or, if a street address is not available, an equivalent description of location for a rural location or the latitude and longitude of each property. The department shall update the list as new deed restrictions are recorded. The department shall make the list available to the public, upon request, and shall make the list available on the department's Internet Web site. The list shall also be incorporated into the list of sites compiled pursuant to Section 65962.5 of the Government Code.
