Dictionary of Legal Terms
Movable personal property such as a showcase, shelving, or other equipment used in a business. Because trade fixtures-although physically attached or fastened to a business premises-can be removed without substantial harm to the real estate, they are not considered to be part of the real estate. See fixture, real property.
