NEW LAW AUTOMATICALLY EXTENDS EXISTING TENTATIVE MAPS FOR TWO YEARS, BUT ALSO CREATES NEW PITFALLS, AND REDUCES SOME PROTECTIONS FOR RECORDED MAPS

On July 15, 2009, the Governor signed new "urgency" legislation to automatically extend the life of existing tentative subdivision maps, vesting tentative maps ("VTMs") and parcel maps for two additional years -- provided that they were still valid and in effect on July 15, and would otherwise expire before January 1, 2012. The new law, AB 333 (Fuentes) (Stats. 2009, ch. 18), included urgency provisions so that it took effect immediately upon signature by the Governor. The urgency of this measure, intended to preserve the many approved projects which were otherwise in danger of map expiration and loss of valuable rights, was apparently recognized so that it was able to receive the Governor's signature notwithstanding the hold on most other new legislation pending resolution of the State budget situation.
