What does property rights mean?
If you possess moveable (cars, safes, bikes, jewelry etc) or immovable property (real estate) you can make extensive use of property rights to ensure that you don’t get victim to property frauds/illegal theft by relatives, friends, colleagues, neighbors or someone other than them.
Secondly, property ownership involves extensive legal documents. Having the right kind of documents with everything listed and agreed upon by both parties is very important.
Co-ownership is another very crucial aspect of property rights. As history can tell, co-ownership have always made things complex when handling properties.
