In the vast expanse of the law, there is probably no branch or division which can trace its history farther back, or which is more important to the general public, including as it does innumerable elements of everyday life, than that branch of law dealing with Private Property. The term ‘Property’ has a bewildering variety of uses. However, basically it is used in two senses: that of ownership or title, and also to designate the ‘res’ over which ownership is or has been exercised. This one word is used to express both the genus and the species. The relationship between the individual and the ‘res’ which is his own property is known as the rights of ownership.
