Annexation in real estate is not very complicated. It usually has to do with the land. When a small piece of land is connected or incorporated into a larger piece of land. Annexation is often done by expanding municipalities in Florida, Texas, California and New York. When this happens, residents usually have to pay a higher property tax

You may also encounter annexation as in "constructive annexation" which means that a personal property which cannot be removed or is attached to a wall - for example, a library - is treated as a fixture
