Chattel - is a term in the world which refers to personal property which can be moved; it is also known as movable property. Some examples of chattel include jewelry, cars, and furniture.

Income Approach – based on the principle that value tends to be set by the present worth of the right to future net benefits that may be derived from ownership.
