(D) For sites covered under General Permit No. 2 where the ownership changes, the Enforcement Officer must be notified of the title transfer within 30 days, except in the case of single-lot sales, which shall be recorded on the SWPPP. The new owner shall be subject to all terms and conditions of the erosion control permit. A copy of the notice of transfer that was sent to the Enforcement Officer shall be included in the SWPPP. For sites that are part of a larger common plan of development such as a housing or commercial development project, if a permittee transfers ownership of all or any part of property subject to an erosion control permit, both the permittee and transferee shall be responsible for compliance with the provisions of General Permit No. 2 and the erosion control permit for that portion of the project which as been transferred including when the transferred property is less than one acre in area.
