  ( Chapter 7 added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50. )

37175.
  

This chapter provides an optional provision for the redemption, on an installment plan, of property sold to the district for delinquent assessments. The board may at any time, by resolution, elect to permit the redemption of property sold to the district for delinquent assessments according to the provisions of this chapter. The board may at any time thereafter, by further resolution, terminate such election, but no such termination shall affect a redemption plan then in effect.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37176.
  

As used in this chapter:

(a) “Redemption amount” means the total amount which would be necessary to redeem the property from sale for delinquent assessments at the time election is made to pay delinquent assessments in installments under this chapter.

(b) “Balance of the redemption amount” is the amount equal to the difference between the redemption amount and the total of the portions previously paid which portions were paid as a part of the redemption amount.

(c) “Redemptioner” is the person whose estate has been sold, or his successor in interest.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37177.
  

During such time as the provisions of this chapter are effective in the district pursuant to a resolution adopted under authority of Section 37175, any person may elect to pay delinquent assessments in installments under this chapter at any time before a collector’s deed of the property has been delivered, except that if payment of delinquent assessments has been started under this chapter and the amount required to be paid in any fiscal year is not paid as required by this chapter, payment in installments may not again be started with respect to the same delinquent assessments.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37178.
  

During the time payments are made under this chapter, there shall not be:

(a) Delivery of a collector’s deed.

(b) Any termination of the right of redemption.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37179.
  

Election to pay delinquent assessments in installments is made by payment, in the same manner as a redemption, of 331/3 percent, or more, of the redemption amount. All current assessments, with penalties thereon, due or coming due for the fiscal year in which this first payment is made shall be paid before the delinquency date of the last installment of current assessments, except that if the election to pay delinquent assessments in installments is made on or after the delinquency date of the last installment of current assessments for any fiscal year, the current assessments, with penalties thereon, shall be paid with or prior to the installment payment.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37180.
  

In each succeeding fiscal year, the redemptioner shall pay all current assessments and penalties coming due in that fiscal year before the delinquency date of the last installment of current assessments.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37181.
  

In each succeeding fiscal year, the redemptioner shall pay, before the delinquency date of the last installment of current assessments, the sum of the following:

(a) That amount which is computed to be not less than the difference between the amounts previously paid under the provisions of this chapter, excepting amounts paid as interest, and:

(1) 662/3 percent of the redemption amount when the payment is made during or prior to the first fiscal year following the year in which election was made to pay delinquent assessments in installments.

(2) 100 percent of the redemption amount when the payment is made during or prior to the second fiscal year following the year in which election was made to pay delinquent assessments in installments.

(b) Interest, computed at the rate of three-fourths of 1 percent per month accruing on the first day of each month following the preceding payment, on the balance of the redemption amount.

Payments under this section shall be computed and paid in the same manner as a redemption, and the receipts for such payment shall show that the payments are for the use of the real estate under this plan for payment of delinquent assessments in installments.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37182.
  

If all payments are not made on or before the dates prescribed, a collector’s deed of the property may be delivered and the right of redemption may be terminated in the same manner as if no election to pay delinquent assessments in installments had been made.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37183.
  

Payments under this chapter are not a redemption or partial redemption and do not affect the district’s interest in the real estate. The payments are compensation for the use of the real estate.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

37184.
  

If all payments under this chapter are made as prescribed and if redemption of the property is made before the delinquency date of the last installment of current assessments in the second fiscal year succeeding the fiscal year when the first payment was made, the amount necessary to redeem the property is the balance of the redemption amount with interest on such balance three-fourths of 1 percent accruing on the first day of each month following the last preceding payment to the date of redemption. When redemption is made under this section, no credit shall be allowed for amounts previously paid or credited.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 50.)

The redemption certificate for a redemption under this chapter shall show the following:
