Section 5 of the Act defines “Transfer of Property” as “In the following sections ‘transfer of property’ means an act by which a living person conveys property in present or in future, to one or more other living person, or to himself, and one or more other living persons, and “to transfer property” is to perform such act.
In this section “Living Person” includes “a company or association or body of individuals whether incorporated or not, but nothing herein contained shall affect any law for the time being in force relating to transfer of property to or by companies, associations or bodies of individuals.”
The word “property” has not been defined in the Act, but it has a very wide meaning and includes properties of all descriptions. It includes movable properties such as case, books, etc., and includes immovable properties also such as lands or houses. It also includes intangible properties such as ownership, tenancy, copyrights, etc.
