    land that has the capacity to be transferred

    Alienable land in property law is land that has the capacity to be transferred by mortgage or by deed. Property is generally deemed to be alienable by its owner unless there were restrictions placed on it when it was acquired. Therefore, in property law, mortgaging or selling real property is also called the alienation of land.

    Can the word "capacity" be used with respect to lands like this? Is it natural?

    I think "Land which are transferable by mortgage or deeds" would be better.

    Re: land that has the capacity to be transferred

    I agree, except that it the number of the subject should agree with that of the verb (either 'lands...are' or 'land...is') but maybe a lawyer specializing in real estate wouldn't

    Oh! I apologize. It was a typo. I didn't notice it while typing.
