Definition of Real Property

Real property is generally defined as land and the things permanently attached to the land. Things that are permanently attached to the land, can also be referred to as improvements, including homes, garages, and buildings.

Substances that are beneath the land (such as gas, oil, minerals) are also considered permanently attached. Other items which can be attached to the land, such as mobile homes and tool sheds, are not considered to be real property
