Existing law establishes a low-income housing tax credit program pursuant to which the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee provides procedures and requirements for the allocation of state insurance, personal income, and corporation income tax credit amounts among low-income housing projects based on federal law. Existing law, in modified conformity to federal income tax law, allows the credit based upon the applicable percentage, as defined, of the qualified basis of each qualified low-income building. Existing law limits the total annual amount of the credit that the committee may allocate to $70 million per year, as specified. This bill, for calendar years 2016 through 2021, inclusive, would increase the aggregate housing credit dollar amount that may be allocated among low-income housing projects by $100,000,000, as specified. The bill, under the insurance taxation law, the Personal Income Tax Law, and the Corporation Tax Law, would modify the definition of applicable percentage relating to qualified low-income buildings that meet specified criteria. This bill would incorporate additional changes to Sections 12206, 17058, and 23610.5 of the Revenue and Taxation Code proposed by SB 377 that would become operative if this bill and SB 377 are chaptered and this bill is chaptered last. This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy. Hide

The Planning and Zoning Law requires, when a developer of housing proposes a housing development within the jurisdiction of the local government, that the city, county, or city and county provide the developer with a density bonus and other incentives or concessions for the production of lower income housing units or the donation of land within the development if the developer, among other things, agrees to construct a specified percentage of units for very low, low-, or moderate-income households or qualifying residents. Existing law requires continued affordability for 55 years or longer, as specified, of all very low and low-income units that qualified an applicant for a density bonus. Existing law prohibits a city, county, or city and county from requiring a vehicular parking ratio for a housing development that meets these criteria in excess of specified ratios. This prohibition applies only at the request of the developer and specifies that the developer may request additional parking incentives or concessions. This bill would, notwithstanding the above-described provisions, additionally prohibit, at the request of the developer, a city, county, or city and county from imposing a vehicular parking ratio, inclusive of handicapped and guest parking, in excess of 0.5 spaces per bedroom on a development that includes the maximum percentage of low- or very low income units, as specified, and is located within12 mile of a major transit stop, as defined, and there is unobstructed access to the transit stop from the development. The bill would also prohibit, at the request of the developer, a city, county, or city and county from imposing a vehicular parking ratio, inclusive of handicapped and guest parking, in excess of specified amounts per unit on a development that consists solely of units with an affordable housing cost to lower income households, as specified, if the development is within12 mile of a major transit stop and there is unobstructed access to the transit stop from the development, is a for-rent housing development for individuals that are 62 years of age or older that complies with specified existing laws regarding senior housing, or is a special needs housing development, as those terms are defined. The bill would require a subject development that is a for-rent housing development for individuals that are 62 years of age or older or a special needs housing development to have either paratransit service or unobstructed access, within 12 mile, to fixed bus route service that operates at least 8 times per day. The bill would authorize a city, county, or city and county to impose a higher vehicular parking ratio based on substantial evidence found in an areawide or jurisdictionwide parking study, as specified. The bill would make findings and declarations, including that the subject of the bill is a matter of statewide concern and not a municipal affair. By imposing additional duties on local governments in awarding density bonuses, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. Hide

The Mobilehome Residency Law governs tenancies in mobilehome parks. That law, among other things, sets forth certain rights and requirements for the management and selling homeowners in connection with the listing, sale, or exchange of a mobilehome, and, if not prohibited by management, the rental of a mobilehome, including, but not limited to, authorizing the display of signs advertising the sale, exchange, or rental, and authorizing the display of an “open house” sign unless prohibited by park rules; requiring the signs to contain specified information and be of an H-frame or A-frame design; and requiring the management, upon request of a prospective homeowner, to provide the information the management will use to determine if the person will be acceptable as a homeowner in the park. Under that law, the management or owner may be held liable for damages proximately resulting from the withholding of approval of a prospective homeowner for any reason not stated in that law. On and after July 1, 2016, this bill would no longer condition the display of an open house sign on the lack of prohibition in park rules, but would allow a park to establish reasonable rules or regulations governing the conduct of open houses, as specified; would additionally authorize a seller to display one sign of an L-frame or a generally accepted yard-arm type design; would authorize management to require the use of a step-in L-frame sign; and would define a “listing.” The bill would require the management, upon written request, to provide in writing the information and standards the management will use to review a prospective homeowner to the prospective homeowner or seller and make technical changes. The bill would additionally condition the liability for damages resulting from withholding approval of a prospective homeowner for reasons based upon fraud, deceit, or concealment of material facts by the prospective purchaser.

The California Constitution generally limits ad valorem taxes on real property to 1% of the full cash value of that property. For purposes of this limitation, “full cash value” is defined as the assessor’s valuation of real property as shown on the 1975–76 tax bill under “full cash value” or, thereafter, the appraised value of that real property when purchased, newly constructed, or a change in ownership has occurred. Existing property tax law specifies those circumstances in which the transfer of ownership interests in a corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or other legal entity results in a change in ownership of the real property owned by that entity, and generally provides that a change in ownership as so described occurs if a legal entity or other person obtains a controlling or majority ownership interest in the legal entity. Existing law also specifies other circumstances in which certain transfers of ownership interests in legal entities result in a change in ownership of the real property owned by those legal entities. This bill would instead specify that if 100% of the ownership interests in a legal entity, as defined, are sold or transferred in a single transaction, as specified, the real property owned by that legal entity has changed ownership, whether or not any one legal entity or person that is a party to the transaction acquires more than 50% of the ownership interests. The bill would require the State Board of Equalization to notify assessors if a change in ownership as so described occurs. Existing law requires a person or legal entity that obtains a controlling or majority ownership interest in a legal entity, or an entity that makes specified transfers of ownership interests in the legal entity, to file a change in ownership statement signed under penalty of perjury with the State Board of Equalization, as specified. Existing law requires a penalty of 10% of the taxes applicable to the new base year value, as specified, or 10% of the current year’s taxes on the property, as specified, to be added to the assessment made on the roll if a person or legal entity required to file a change in ownership statement fails to do so. This bill would require a person or legal entity acquiring ownership interests in a legal entity, if 100% of the ownership interests in the legal entity are sold or transferred, as described above, to file a change in ownership statement signed under penalty of perjury with the State Board of Equalization. This bill would increase the penalties for failure to file a change in ownership statement, as described above, from 10% to 20%. This bill would also require a person or legal entity that acquires the ownership interest of a legal entity to report the change in ownership interests to the State Board of Equalization if any change in the ownership interests in a legal entity holding an interest in real property in this state occurs, as provided. This bill would require a legal entity to report subsequent changes in the ownership interests of the legal entity to the county assessor if a specified transfer between an individual or individuals and a legal entity or between legal entities occurs, as provided. This bill would also require a deed to be recorded with the county recorder by the owner of the real property, even if the owner of the real property does not change, if a change of an ownership interest in a legal entity holding an interest in real property occurs. By expanding the crime of perjury and by imposing new duties upon local county officials with respect to changes in ownership, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above. This bill would include a change in state statute that would result in a taxpayer paying a higher tax within the meaning of Section 3 of Article XIIIA of the California Constitution, and thus would require for passage the approval of 23 of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy. Hide

Existing law requires the installation of a manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular as a fixture or improvement to real property to comply with specified provisions. Existing law requires an enforcement agency to record with the county recorder of the county where real property is situated, on the same day that the certificate of occupancy for a manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular is issued by the appropriate enforcement agency, that the real property has been installed upon, a document naming the owner of the real property, describing the real property with certainty, and stating that a manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular has been affixed to the real property by installation on a foundation system, as specified. This bill would instead require that recordation to occur within 5 business days of the issuance of the certificate of occupancy. Existing law provides that once installed on a foundation system in compliance with these provisions, a manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular shall be deemed a fixture and a real property improvement to the real property to which it is affixed and physical removal of the manufactured home, mobilehome, or commercial modular shall thereafter be prohibited without the consent of all persons or entities who, at the time of removal, have title to any estate or interest in the real property to which it is affixed. The bill would also make other technical, nonsubstantive, and clarifying changes. Hide

The Mobilehome Residency Law governs the terms and conditions of residency in mobilehome parks. Existing law requires the management of a mobilehome park to include a copy of the Mobilehome Residency Law in the rental agreement, and to provide all homeowners with a copy of the Mobilehome Residency Law by February 1 of each year, if a significant change was made in those provisions by legislation enacted in the prior year. This bill would require the rental agreement to include a specified notice and would require the management of a mobilehome park to provide a copy of that notice to all homeowners prior to February 1 of each year. The bill would require the notice to describe various rights applicable to homeowners in mobilehome parks that are established by statute, including, among other things, that a homeowner is required to receive advance written notice before any rent increase. The bill would authorize all notices required to be delivered to the homeowner prior to February 1 of each year under the provisions above to be combined in one notice that contains all the information required by these provisions.

Existing law requires the Secretary of Business, Transportation and Housing to develop and report to the Governor on legislative, budgetary, and administrative programs to accomplish comprehensive, long-range, coordinated planning and policy formulation in the matters of public interest related to the agency. This bill would place the Military Advisor Council and the position of the Governor’s Advisor on Military Affairs under the direction of the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, and set forth that position’s duties and authority with respect to state and local defense retention and conversion. It would provide that the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research would be in the charge of the advisor who would be appointed by the Governor.

The Sales and Use Tax Law imposes a sales tax on a retailer measured by the gross receipts from the retail sale in this state of tangible personal property and a use tax on the storage, use, or other consumption in this state of tangible personal property purchased from a retailer for storage, use, or other consumption in this state measured by sales price. Existing law increases the state sales and use tax rate on the sale of, and on the storage, use, or other consumption of, tangible personal property, by 1% to a rate of 714% from April 1, 2009, until July 1, 2011, as provided. The Sales and Use Tax law also provides that a person who is a retailer of mobilehomes, including manufactured homes, who sells a new mobilehome to a purchaser for occupancy as a residence shall pay use tax at the time of its sale to the purchaser, measured by an amount equal to 75% of the price the retailer paid for the new mobilehome. This bill would provide that the 1% rate of tax increase does not apply to the gross receipts from the sale of a new mobilehome, or the sales price of a new mobilehome sold or stored, used, or otherwise consumed in this state, if specified conditions are met.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state.

The Mobilehome Residency Law generally regulates the terms and conditions of mobilehome tenancies in mobilehome parks. Existing law permits rent control in mobilehome parks. Existing law exempts certain rental agreements relating to mobilehomes from any local measure establishing the maximum amount that a landlord may charge a tenant for rent. This bill would provide that, upon the sale, assignment, transfer, or termination of an interest in a mobilehome or a mobilehome tenancy in a mobilehome park, the management of the park may offer a new rental agreement containing an initial rent that is in excess of the maximum rent established by a local measure by a minimum of 20% or $100, whichever is greater, as specified. The bill would permit not more than one increase within a 36-month period, as specified. The bill would specify that it does not apply to rental rate adjustments that are not subject to a local rent control ordinance and does not apply under other specified circumstances. Hide
