Property

Property signifies dominion or right of use, control, and disposition which one may lawfully exercise over things, objects, or land. One of the basic dividing lines between property is that between real property and personal property. Generally, the term "real property" refers to land. Land, in its general usage, includes not only the face of the earth but everything of a permanent nature over or under it.
