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.

Definition from Gyldendals Røde Ordbøger:
svarer til løsøre (NB! egtl.: ‘any property other than freehold land’; omfatter altså også ‘leasehold land’)

Example sentence(s):
  • løsøre, (af løs i bet. 'bevægelig, ikke fast' og glda. -øre 'ejendel', af møntenheden øre), juridisk betegnelse for flytbare fysiske formuegenstande, dvs. møbler, husgeråd, maskiner, inventar, varelagre o.l. Begrebet afgrænses dermed på den ene side over for fast ejendom, der pr. definition er forplantet i jorden, og på den anden side over for tjenesteydelser, som går ud på at præstere et personligt arbejde. Mange af formuerettens regler tager primært sigte på løsøregenstande, fx bestemmelserne i købelovgivningen, men for nye typer af ydelser, fx rene informationsprodukter, kan det være usikkert, om reglerne gælder direkte, eller om de helt eller delvis skal anvendes ved analogi. - Den Store Danske
