Two kinds of property form part of a person’s estate, movable and immovable property. Within each of these two types of property, there are further classifications, each having its own rights attached to it, and responsibilities. These different forms of property are also protected in different ways.

Property Law relates to the rights a person has concerning their assets, their control, use, and disposition. It is the law as it relates to property. Property Law regulates relationships between people concerning their property. Even people who are not owners, but who only have possession of the property in question; have rights that they may exercise over the property, depending on the circumstances. In addition to the circumstances of each situation, the nature of the property is also what will make the approach needed unique.

Movable Property

Movable property encompasses property that is not fixed or stationary. Examples of movable property include your laptop, your cell phone, your car, your dinner set, and other items that one would normally classify as property on a day-to-day basis.

In the ordinary course of the day, movable property is bought and sold with no hassle, but there are instances where a more thorough contract is needed for the transaction to go through safely and successfully, protecting all parties involved. One may perhaps be interested in leasing a car, and for that there is a more intricate contract that is involved, describing all the obligations in full, and binding them to the deal.

Immovable Property

Immovable property is very much that, the stationary property that cannot be moved, it is fixed, such as land and buildings.

Contracts relating to immovable property can also take many forms and as such we are governed by a variety of laws that regulate its control, use, disposition, and enjoyment.
