furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E)

All the property at a location,except for the real property itself. Usually referred to by the initials only (FF&E). Lenders will often take security interests in the FF&E of a business borrower, in addition to a mortgage on the real property, so as not to encounter a possible post-default battle over what was covered by their lien.
