Property

By: Parmdeep Vadesha

Property investment is an ideal option if a person wants to expand his/her financial assets. The owner has the prerogative of updating the property as per his own wishes whilst having the exclusive right to use it whenever he wants for his own benefit.

Properties are of various types like personal property, real property and intellectual property. All movable properties are classified as personal properties whereas all immovable properties are termed as real property or real estate. The unique difference between the two types is that movable properties can depreciate with time whereas immovable properties do not. Stocks, bonds and other financial products fall under the category of abstract property which also comes under personal property.

Trademarks, copyrights and patents come under intellectual property rights. Any new invention or discovery, new mathematical or scientific theories, personal articles, poems and similar literary works, new artistic creation, or any new concepts or ideas used for developing a product by any company and many other things which have been created by an individual or a group of people or an organization become the intellectual property of the owner, and the owner has an exclusive right on it.

Property owners are provided legal rights to deal with their property as per their own liking. The owner is provided the liberty to sell, transfer or extract profit from their property, for example.

There are various provisions laid down by the law as to who should own a property. A mentally incapable person or a minor is generally not the owner. The provisions might be different in different countries but none are allowed to use the property to harm others.

Properties can be public or they can be private. Public property is owned by the state or by any community whereas private properties are owned by an individual or a group of persons or by a company. As per law, a company is an entity that has the right to own a property. Property can also be given on lease in case of real or personal property. When given on lease the lessee can use the property but cannot sell it and also the owners also generally do not have the right to compel you to leave the property before the lease expires. In case of intellectual property, the owner can grant licenses to others.

There are certain properties which do not have any owner but still they are protected by law. For instance the seawater and seafloor is not generally owned by anyone. Atmosphere of the earth, the outer space, the celestial bodies, other planets or galaxies and even the land in Antarctica is not owned by anybody. Though they do not have any owners, there are international laws and no one is allowed to harm these properties. As well, wild animals are state properties and are protected by the state.
