Section 22.(General explanations)Moveable property

Definition of movable property is given under CHAPTER II- GENERAL EXPLANATIONS “Movable property”. —The words “movable property” are intended to include corporeal property of every description, except land and things attached to the earth or permanently fastened to anything which is attached to the earth.


The words “movable property” are intended to include corporeal property of every description, except land and things attached to the earth or permanently fastened to anything which is attached to the earth.


The definition makes a distinction between land and earth. Land and things attached to the earth are immovable property. Such land and things when detached from the earth become movable property. Similarly, so long as something is fastened to anything which is attached to the earth, it is immovable property. But as soon as the same is unfastened, it becomes a movable property.
This definition is restricted to corporeal property; it excludes all chooses in action. Property means things or things owned. A thing was thrown away as waste loses its value and can no longer be regarded as property.


Corporeal property is a property that may be perceived by the senses, in contradistinction to incorporeal rights, which are not so perceivable, as obligations of all kinds. Thus, salt produced on a swamp, and papers forming part of the record of a case, are property within the meaning of this section. A cheque is a movable property. But the right in the cheque or record of the case is incorporeal property.
Land and things attached to the earth: This section does not exempt “earth and things attached to the earth,” but “land and things attached to the earth”; “land”’ and “earth’’ are not synonymous terms, and there is a great distinction between ‘‘the earth,’ and “earth”. By severance, things that are immoveable become moveable, and it is perfectly correct to call those things attached which can be severed; and undoubtedly it is possible to sever earth from the earth and attach it again thereto. Earth, that is soil and all the component parts of the soil, inclusive of stones and minerals, when severed from the earth or land to which it was attached, are moveable property capable of being the subject of theft. Any part of “the earth,” whether it be stones or sand or clay or any other component, when severed from “the earth,” is moveable property.
