What Is a Fee Simple Title Holder?

A fee simple title holder is someone who owns a piece of property and has absolute ownership and rights to that property. This ownership includes the land and any improvements on the land, and no one has the right to take away the fee simple title holder’s property, states Zillow.

When someone takes possession of a piece of property with a fee simple title, he has the right to possess the land, use it, or dispose of it in any way he sees fit, explains Zillow. The land owner can sell the property, give it away, lease it, or bequeath it to others upon death.
