The interest retained by a grantor after transferring a determinable fee (one that will automatically end on a specified event,such as “to Mary until her thirtieth birthday or marriage,whichever comes first) or an estate in fee simple conditional (available in only some states, it says that a gift to A “and the heirs of his body”retains a possibility of reverter in the grantor because A might never have any heirs of his body).
