Fee tail is an old-fashioned form of real estate ownership in which estates can only be passed to family members in the male line.
Such forms of ownership usually only applies to freehold estates.
This is because leasehold estates eventually expire, breaking the very purpose of fee tail which should pass on ownership “forever” as long as there are descendants in the male family line.
Should the male family line end, leaving the estate is not apparent heirs to inherit the assets, then all property will be reverted to the state.
Contrast this with fee simple, which owners will have absolute authority in the transfer of ownership.
