Property rights is an area of law that oversees different types of ownership and possession concerning real and personal property. This type of property is often confused with personal possessions. In short, personal property is about what you own that cannot be moved, whereas personal possessions can be moved. Personable property (or immovable property) relates to real estate as well as the rights and duties affiliated with that real estate. Stolen land, for example, is considered to be a personal property case. A stolen purse, on the other hand, is considered to be a personal possession case.
