Trespass of goods

 Trespass to Goods

Trespass is defined as improper activity in which a person enters or disturbs the custody of another person's property, whether mobile or immovable, or causes any bodily harm to the person without his consent. The word "intention" here refers to something that is done voluntarily. 

Different type of Trespass

  1. Trespassing on another person

It refers to when someone interferes with one's body inappropriately and with bad intentions. It involves the use of force that results in bodily harm and disability. Any sort of touch with one's person or body without one's consent that causes legal injury to the person is considered trespass to the person.

If a friend of B hits B on the head without B's permission, A is guilty for trespass to the body.


  1. Trespass to Property: When a person enters someone's property or causes a disturbance with someone's property, whether mobile or immovable, with the improper intent and without their agreement or permission, or without any legitimate authorization.

Trespassing on Moving Property or Goods

Trespass to movable property occurs when a person causes damage to another's movable property with the intent of causing harm.

It refers to interfering with someone's transportable property or products without their permission.

Illustration, If A, a friend of B, enters B's automobile without B's permission and scratches the hood of B's car. Trespass to Movable Property is punishable by A.

Thulasi Ammal against Muthuswami Gounder

In this situation, the car's driver was irresponsible, and he became trapped with the vehicle, causing damage to it. The court, on the other hand, stated that it was not simply an accident, but also a trespass on another's mobile property and property damage. As a result, the defendant is responsible for trespassing on moveable property.

Trespassing on Immovable Property is a crime that occurs when someone enters an immovable property without permission.

It refers to when someone makes a disturbance on someone's immovable property, such as land, property, house, or office, without their knowledge or permission or without any legal authorization.

As an example, suppose Ram posted a sign on the front gate of his garden that reads, "No Entry Without Permission." Chetan entered the garden without Ram's permission one lovely day. Chetan has broken the law by trespassing on moveable property.


Trespass on Property

Trespass to Goods occurs when a person's property is damaged directly or indirectly, or when a person's property is illegally taken away from the rightful owner without his or her agreement. In other terms, the act of trespassing goods refers to the unlawful and purposeful interference with the ownership of things by unjustly taking it away from the legitimate owner.

Hari Kar and Others v. Jadu Nath, Dundput, Sripati

In this instance, the defendant illegally entered the plaintiff's property and chopped and took away the plaintiff's standing crops. Because the defendant harmed things that were in the plaintiff's legitimate possession, the defendant is responsible for both trespass to land and trespass to goods in this case.
