The Opportunity Is Now
Proposition 19 fully goes into effect on April 1, 2021, protecting millions of older homeowners, homeowners with severe disabilities, and victims of wildfire or natural disaster.
As older homeowners move to senior housing, retirement communities, or condos, or downsize to smaller homes, more homeownership opportunities will open up in communities throughout the state each year for renters, young families, and first-time homebuyers.
Prop 19 allows victims of wildfire or natural disaster to transfer the property tax base of their damaged house to a replacement home anywhere in California.
