Business / Real Estate / Fee Simple Determinable: A fee simple determinable is an estate in real property that exists so long as, while or during the period that a certain prescribed use continues. Such use is described in the grant of conveyance. For example, a conveyance to the University of Knowitall so long as the real estate is used for educational purposes would give the university title, provided the granted land is used as prescribed. If, at some future time, the university were to stop using the property for educational purposes, title would revert to the original grantor, if living, or to his or her heirs if the grantor is deceased. A fee simple determinable automatically ends when the purpose for which it has been prescribed terminates. Upon the grant of a fee simple determinable, there remains in the grantor a possibility of reverter.
