UPDATE

AB 957 “The Buyers Choice Act”

What is AB 957 the “Buyer’s Choice Act?” The Buyer’s Choice Act prohibits owners (typically banks) of foreclosed properties from forcing California homebuyers to use a particular title company, escrow company or other real estate service provider. The Buyer’s Choice Act requires that a disclosure notice be provided to buyers informing them of their rights to choose their own real estate service companies to close their transactions. When does AB 957 become law? The Buyer’s Choice Act became law on Sunday - October 11, 2009.

FACT 1: Any seller of residential real property improved by four or fewer dwelling units shall not require directly or indirectly, as a condition of selling the property, that title insurance covering the property or escrow service provided in connection with the sale of the property be purchased by the buyer from a particular title insurer or escrow agent. This section does not prohibit a buyer from agreeing to accept the services of a title insurer or an escrow agent recommended by the seller if written notice of the right to make an independent selection of those services is first provided by the seller to the buyer. FACT 2: A seller who violates this section shall be liable to a buyer in an amount equal to three times all charges made for the title insurance or escrow service. In addition, any person who violates this section shall be deemed to have violated his or her license law and shall be subject to discipline by his or her licensing entity. FACT 3: This article shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2015, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2015 deletes or extends that date. Note: If buyer agrees to “Sellers Choice” in the purchase contract there is still a chance for the buyer to use a title insurer or escrow agent of his/her choice once they receive the written notice of the right to make an independent selection of services from the Seller / Bank. In the event that the buyer exercises their rights to put into effect The Buyers Choice Act, the Seller/ Bank should not counter the decision of the buyer in the purchase contract.

T H E R E A LT O R ’ S G U I D E What are Propositions 60 & 90? They are constitutional initiatives passed by California voters. They provide property tax relief by preventing reassessment when a senior citizen sells his/her existing residence and purchases or constructs a replacement residence with a value equal to or less than the original.

Who Qualifies? The seller of the original residence, or spouse who resides with the seller, must be at least 55 years of age at the time of the sale.

When are These Propositions Effective? The replacement residence must have been purchased or constructed on or after November 5, 1986 if the original was located in Los Angeles County, or after November 9, 1998 if it was located in any other California County. Claims must be filed within three years following the purchase of the replacement residence.

Eligibility Requirements: 1. The replacement property must be the owner’s principal residence and eligible for the Homeowners’ Exemption. The original property, at the time of its sale, must have been eligible for the Homeowners’ Exemption, or entitled to the Disabled Veterans’ Exemption. 2. The seller of the original residence, or a spouse residing with the seller, must be at least 55 years of age, as of the date that the original property is transferred. 3. The replacement property must be of equal or lesser “current market value” than the original.

4. If the replacement is purchased in Los Angeles County, the original can be located in Los Angeles County or any other California County. Twelve other counties have passed similar Proposition 90 Local Option Ordinances. If the original residence is in Los Angeles County, and you want to relocate in another county, contact that county for Proposition 90 eligibility. 5. The replacement property must be purchased or newly constructed within two years (before or after) the sale of the original property. 6. The owner must file an application within three years following the purchase date or new construction completion date of the replacement property. 7. This is a one-time only filing. Proposition 60/90 relief cannot be granted if the claimant, or spouse, was granted relief in the past. 8. Proposition 60/90 relief includes, but is not limited to: single family residences, condominiums, units in planned unit developments, cooperative housing corporation units or lots, community property apartment units, mobile homes subject to local real property tax, and owners’ living premises which are a portion of a larger structure. 9. In most instances, if more than one owner of an original property is eligible for Proposition 60/90, they must choose among themselves which one will use the benefits.

Commonly Asked Questions: Q: Is it true that only one claimant need be at least age 55 as of the date of the sale of an original property in order to qualify? A: Yes. The principal claimant/occupant of his/her spouse must be age 55.

Q: If I get Proposition 60/90 benefits will I still have to file for a Homeowners’ Exemption on the replacement property? A: Yes. You must file for a Homeowners’ Exemption on the replacement property. It is not granted automatically. Q: What is the filing deadline? A: Within three years of purchasing or completing new construction of the replacement property. Q: Can a claimant transfer the factored base year value from an original single family residence to a replacement duplex or multi-unit residence (living in one unit and renting the others)? A: Yes. The owner could carry the factored base year value of the original property to that portion of the replacement parcel that is his/her principal place of abode, and the land that constitutes a reasonable size to embody a site for the residence. However, that portion comprising the abode must be of equal or lesser value than the original property. The rest of the parcel will be appraised at its market value.
