Appurtenances



An appurtenance is a term for what belongs to and goes with something else, with the appurtenance being less significant than what it belongs to.

The word ultimately derives from Latin appertinere, "to appertain". An appurtenance belongs to something else, either attached or not, such as a barn to a house, or an easement to land.

The appurtenance is part of the property and goes with it upon sale or other transfer.
