Real Property


in law, tracts of land and the various capital structures and installations erected thereon. Real property was recognized under prerevolutionary Russian law and has major significance under the legislation of the present-day bourgeois states, where rights to real property are publicly established and transactions involving real property, particularly land, must meet certain legal requirements.

Under Soviet law, property need not be classified as either movable or immovable because land, the main component of real property, is under the sole ownership of the state. Private transactions that involve land are accordingly prohibited. The special legal status that is established for land and its mineral wealth, waters, forests, structures, and installations is conditioned by the economic importance these objects possess.
