Determinable

Primary tabs

Determinable generally refers to an interest in a property’s capability of terminating upon the occurrence of a specified event or condition. It is most often used in the context of a fee simple determinable, which is a type of defeasible estate that terminates automatically when an event specified in the grant takes place. 

Determinable can also refer to a fact’s capability of being ascertained or determined.
