Explanation:
I think most French speakers would just use "prive". Sometimes people use a specialised word which sounds similar to the word they should use (e.g.English speakers saying "usage" when they just mean "use").

"Privatif" is a term meaning "privative", which the Oxford Dictionary defines as "denoting the privation or absence of a quality etc."

Explanation:
"privatif" meaning private, is used when comparing different parts of co-owned property.

I am a home-owner and whilst the house stands in a garden which we own along with the bricks and mortar, beyond a certain limit, the land around is co-owned. It is a "co-propriété" with each owner having a "partie privative" and a share in the "parties communes".
