English term or phrase: chattel
Definition from Ameraco:
An item of personal property which is not affixed to the land or building (as opposed to a fixture, an item which is a part of the land or building). Chattels are generally not included in the sale of property unless specifically included in the Agreement of Purchase and Sale.

Example sentence(s):
  • When you rent your property out, the occupant also rents your chattel or personal property in the house which loses value because of the wear and tear from the tenants use.
  • Although the average life span for depreciating chattel is 5 years, there is some personal property that has a longer life span. So, if you keep your rental property for 5 years, you would be able to depreciate the chattel off your taxes every year for 5 years. Spectrum Chattel Service
  • You might be surprised knowing the value of your chattel. While an individual piece of movable property may not be that valuable, it is quite easy to pack a home taking a substantial amount of belongings.

Bé moble

Definition from Termcat:
Bé que no té una situació fixa i que pot ser traslladat d'una banda a una altra sense malmetre's.

Example sentence(s):
  • Taxar els béns mobles integrants del patrimoni cultural que es pretengui lliurar a l'Administració de la Generalitat en pagament de deutes i els que siguin objecte de donació o llegat en favor de la Generalitat. - Portal Jurídic de Catalunya  
  • Béns mobles Segons l'article 335 del Codi civil, es consideren béns mobles els susceptibles d'apropiació que no siguin considerats immobles, i en general tots els que es puguin transportar d'un lloc a un altre sens detriment de la cosa immoble a què estiguin units - Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Dep.  
  • El llegat disposat en concepte de llegítima o imputable a ella que no sigui llegat simple de llegítima pot consistir en una suma en metàl·lic, encara que no n'hi hagi en l'herència, o en béns d'exclusiva, plena i lliure propietat del causant, llevat el cas de no haver-n'hi en aquella, sense comptar a aquest sol objecte els béns mobles d'us domèstic. Si els béns no tenen aquella condició, el legitimari pot optar entre acceptar simplement el llegat o renunciar-lo i exigir allò que per llegítima li correspongui. - Universitat de Girona - Institut de Dret
