What is a 'house', what is a 'home'

What is a 'house', what is a 'home'

Postby Farmer » Tue Jan 19, 2010 12:50 pm

Today I heard something that is interesting: In the US, a 'house' is something that you own and can pass on to your heirs. A 'home' is something that is in a commercial environment and cannot be passed on to your heirs. so for example, you can rent a 'home', but you can't rent a 'house'. I wonder whether this is the same in the UK.
If you're scared of 'them' poisoning 'us' with some shit then maybe you haven't noticed the shit they are already poisoning us with.

"Home" is where I live. A "house" is somewhere I might go to stay for a while (like when I visit my parents for example) but it's not where I live.

Well for me its my house or someone else's if I am renting, but always my home. I may visit someone else's home which would be in their house or someone else's if they are renting.

I will need to look at this closer to see what the legal standings are here in the UK because in the US a home cannot be your castle as far as the system is concerned.

In the Uk they send out documents addressed to "HOME OWNER" never "HOUSE OWNER" ?? I wonder if "HOME" is a legal fiction?

That is what it appears to be in the US. A 'home' is in the commercial world; a 'house' is under common law.

i wonder where the phrase 'an englishmans castle is his home' comes from? and why its not 'an englishmans castle is his house'
an englishmans castle is his home doesnt seem to apply anymore, its been over ridden by statute law. under statute law any number of people can enter your home/house against your will, but not under common law i believe.
i wonder how old that phrase is?
is a house the bricks and mortar and a home the spirtitual, a home is what you make of a house?
sorry farmer but more questions than answers im afraid.

You are entitled to dump a pile of bricks on your land. But should you decide to stack the said bricks in a certain way, creating a weatherproof enclosure, otherwise known as a "home". Then someone will take offence, and bulldoze said "home" so it becomes a pile of bricks once more. :rotfl:
