||Proposition 58 (Parent and Child Transfers)
Proposition 58 is a constitutional initiative passed by California voters. It provides property tax relief by preventing the reassessment (change in base year value) of real property when it is transferred between parents and children. The transfer may be a gift, an inheritance or a title change such as adding or deleting a name. In order to receive this exclusion, either party must file a claim. In general, the claim must be filed within three years of the date of transfer (date of the recorded document or date of death), but before the property is transferred or sold to a third party.
