San Diego Property Tax Attorney
Transferring property by selling or gifting it to someone can have major tax implications, especially when it's done between a parent and child. Our tax attorneys can advise you on the best course of action for transferring property so you can avoid tax pitfalls.
How We Help You With Property Transfers
Our tax and legal advice is comprehensive and includes even the more personal aspects of property transfers, such as planning for the transferor’s financial needs and the responsibilities of the transferee. We’ll counsel you on the change in ownership rules and applicable exclusions from reassessment.
Understanding the Terminology
If you’re considering getting legal help from a property tax attorney, here are some of the common terms to familiarize yourself with:
A property deed is a legal document that proves who owns the property. When there’s a transfer of ownership, the deed is the document used to officially complete the transaction.
In legal terms, property refers to land (including unimproved land) and anything that’s permanently attached to it, such as a home or other structures.
Refers to someone’s legal ownership of property. For example, a property owner may be referred to as “holding title” to the property, meaning they own it and can legally use it as they wish. Although title is suppported by a deed, the term itself refers to ownership and not a physical document.
