Aquatic land use rental rates for nonwater-dependent uses.

All requirements in this section shall apply to the department and to port districts managing aquatic lands under a management agreement (WAC 332-30-114).
(1) The value of state-owned aquatic lands withdrawn from general public use for private nonwater-dependent use shall be recognized by charging lessees the full fair market rental. No rent shall be charged for improvements, including fills, on aquatic lands unless owned by the state. The fair market rental is based on: (a) Comparable non-DNR market rents, whether based on land value exclusive of improvements, a percent of gross revenues, or other appropriate basis, or if not available (b) the full market value (same as true and fair value) multiplied by the use rate percentage as determined under subsection (2) of this section and published in the Washington State Register.
(2) Use rate percentage.
(a) The percentage rate will be based on nondepartmental market rental rates of return for comparable properties leased on comparable terms in the locality, or when such do not exist;
(b) The percentage rate of return shall be based on the average rate charged by lending institutions in the area for long term (or term equivalent to the length of the lease) mortgages for comparable uses of real property.
(3) Appraisals: The determination of fair market value shall be based on the indications of value resulting from the application of as many of the following techniques as are appropriate for the use to be authorized:
(a) Shore contribution; utilizing differences in value between waterfront properties and comparable nonwaterfront properties. Generally best for related land-water uses which are independent of each other or not needed for the upland use to exist.
(b) Comparable upland use (substitution); utilizing capacity, development, operation, and maintenance ratios between a use on upland and similar use on aquatic land with such ratios being applied to upland value to provide indication of aquatic land value for such use. Generally best for aquatic land uses which are totally independent of adjacent upland yet may also occur on upland totally independent of direct contact with water.
(c) Extension; utilizing adjacent upland value necessary for total use as the value of aquatic lands needed for use on a unit for unit basis. Generally best for aquatic land uses which are integrated with and inseparable from adjacent upland use.
(d) Market data; utilizing verified transactions between knowledgeable buyers and sellers of comparable properties. Generally best for tidelands or shorelands where sufficient data exists between knowledgeable buyers and sellers.
(e) Income; utilizing residual net income of a commercial venture as the indication of investment return to the aquatic land. This can be expressed either as a land rent per acre or as a percent of gross revenues. Generally best for income producing uses where it can be shown that an owner or manager of the operation is motivated to produce a profit while recognizing the need to obtain returns on all factors of production.
(4) Negotiation of rental amounts may occur when necessary to address the uniqueness of a particular site or use.
(5) Rental shall always be more than the amount that would be charged if the aquatic land parcel was used for water-dependent purposes.
