Personal Property

Business / Real Estate / Personal Property: Things that are tangible and movable, property that is not classified as real property, such as chattels. Title to personal property is transferred by way of a bill of sale, as contrasted with a deed for real property. Items of personal property frequently become the object of dispute between buyer and seller, most often due to whether an item is considered a fixture or due to the sellers attempt to substitute a similar item. Some cautious buyers insert a clause in their purchase contracts to the effect that the buyer will get the appliances as currently installed and used in the premises. A tree is real property while it is rooted in the ground, but when severed it is transformed into personal property. When lumber is assembled, however, and used as material to construct a house, it once again becomes a fixture or real property.
