[Modification of opinion (171 Cal.App.4th 263; ___ Cal.Rptr.3d ___), upon denial of rehearing.]

THE COURT. — IT IS ORDERED that the opinion filed herein on February 19, 2009, be modified as follows, and the petition for rehearing is DENIED:

1. On page 1, first sentence [171 Cal.App.4th 270, advance report, 1st par., line 1], the number "22" is changed to "23" so the sentence reads:

Plaintiffs are owners of 23 single-family residences1 in the Moro Cojo inclusionary housing development projects (sometimes "the Projects") outside of Castroville in the County of Monterey.

2. On page 1, footnote 1 [171 Cal.App.4th 270, advance report, fn. 1], beginning "The 38" is deleted and the following footnote is inserted in its place:

1 The 40 plaintiffs are named individually post (beginning on p. 5) in the text that summarizes their grant deeds.

We have modified our original opinion to increase the number of plaintiffs. We grant plaintiffs' implicit requests, filed after our original opinion, to augment the record with a reporter's transcript showing that the trial court had consolidated another action with this one and to take judicial notice of another grant deed.

3. On page 2, line 12 [171 Cal.App.4th 271, advance report, 1st par., line 12], the number "22" is changed to "24" so the sentence reads:

For the reasons stated below, we will dismiss the appeal as to the County of Monterey and will reverse the judgment after concluding that plaintiffs' properties are subject to a valid affordable housing deed restriction, that the statutes of limitations have lapsed as to claims by 24 plaintiffs of fraudulent

171 Cal.App.4th 1355g

and negligent nondisclosure and breach of implied contracts mostly against CHISPA, and that the same claims by the other 16 plaintiffs against South County remain viable.

4. On page 5, line one of the second full paragraph [171 Cal.App.4th 273, advance report, 3d full par., line 1], the number "11" is changed to "12"; and the number "16" is changed "18"; also, in the same paragraph on line 3 [171 Cal.App.4th 273, advance report, 3d full par., line 3], insert after footnote 3 and before the word "June" the following "May 31, 2000, Napolean and Ligaya Ducusin; June 5, 2000;" so the paragraph reads:

CHISPA issued 12 grant deeds to 18 plaintiffs on the following dates: January 31, 2000, Jose and Maria Marin; May 11, 2000, Jennifer Cruz; May 12, 2000, Salvador Sanchez; May 31, 2000, Napolean and Ligaya Ducusin; June 5, 2000, Efrain and Amparo Ochoa; July 12, 2000, Celestino Salazar; July 13, 2000, Juan and Silvia Palacios; July 14, 2000, Lorena Maravilla; July 17, 2000, Estee Hurley; December 6, 2000, Howard Carter; February 12, 2001, Raul and Yolanda Perez; June 19, 2001, Panfilo and Isaura Barbaso.

5. On page 6, footnote 7 [171 Cal.App.4th 274, advance report, fn. 7], delete the third paragraph beginning "There was a pending stipulation" and ending "in the record."

6. On page 11, line 4 [171 Cal.App.4th 277, advance report, 2d full par., line 9], insert after the number "906" add as footnote 12 the following footnote, which will require renumber of all subsequent footnotes:

12 Code of Civil Procedure section 906 provides in part: "Upon an appeal pursuant to Section 904.1 or 904.2, the reviewing court may review the verdict or decision and any intermediate ruling, proceeding, order or decision which involves the merits or necessarily affects the judgment or order appealed from or which substantially affects the rights of a party. . . .
