    particular home

    move out
    to stop living in a particular home:
    e.g. Her landlord has given her a week to move out.

    I would have written that as, "to stop living in a house". I wonder why "home" is used here, and also why "particular" is added here.

    Please help me.

    Re: particular home

    A house is a building, and it's also your home. A home provides you (and your family) with security and happiness. It belongs to you, to a particular person or family.

    We both have a house, but we have different homes.

    home - definition of home by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
