Chapter 5 Briefs Fee Simple Determinable Ringgold v. Queen Anne's County Association for Handicapped Citizens, Inc. Facts: Robert Ringgold is a mentally challenged man whose mother deeded the house to Queen Anne's County Association for Handicapped Citizens, Inc under the condition that they would take bare of him for the rest of his life. Over the eight to nine year period Quesenberry took care of Roland but one night in March due to the negligence of Quesenberry, Rolland and her were killed in a car accident. Issues: Is the deed fee simple determinable? Does Quesenberry's negligence trigger the conversaion clause? Analysis: The effect which most nearly accords with the intention of the parties is given the first consideration unless to do so would violate some rule of law. A reasonable interpretation of the contract refers to Rolland's general care and it is foreseeable that a fatal car accident would occur. Therefore Roland failed to meet his burden to demonstrate that the care provisions in the deed were not satisfied.
