This term includes all kinds of property, real and personal. Biens are divided into biens meubles, movable property; and biens immeubles, immovable property. The distinction between movable and immovable property is recognized by the continental jurists, and gives rise, in the civil as weli as in the common law, to many important distinctions as to rights and remedies.
