Private Property

Definition - What does Private Property mean?

In general, private property refers to any piece of real property that is not owned by a governmental entity. Depending on the classification of a piece of personal property, the person, persons, or entity that owns the land is free to do upon that land whatever they please within legal bounds.

Justipedia explains Private Property

A person’s home is probably the most well-recognized piece of real property. A person is solely responsible for their home. A person has the legal right to keep anyone out of their home and off of the property that their home resides on as they wish. A commercial building is also a well-recognized piece of real property. However, the commercial building owner has more laws to follow concerning who they can and cannot keep off their property.
