Movable Freehold Law and Legal Definition

Movable freehold refers to a land likely to be gained or lost to the owner by the recession or encroachment of the sea or by change in the course of a stream.

A movable freehold is a land which the owner of the seashore acquires or loses as the sea recedes or approaches. [Holman v. Hodges, 112 Iowa 714, 718 (Iowa 1901)].
