1. You’re Considering Leasing the Mineral Rights to Your Property
Rushing into a
mineral rights lease without consulting an experienced
oil and gas attorney is a debacle waiting to happen. Done without regard to conservation, the
wrong lease can be ruinous to a patch of land and to the community it
helps support. It can also cause you to lose money on what should be a
very profitable arrangement. If you’ve been offered a mineral rights
lease, talk with us first before you commit.
2. You’ve Leased the Mineral Rights to Your Property, but the Company
Hasn’t Paid You
This could be a breach of contract issue, and we’re here to help.
If you’ve entered into an agreement with a mining company in which
they use your land to harvest oil or gas, you should be paid according
to the terms of the agreement. If that isn’t happening, you need
the services of a good oil and gas attorney.
3. Your Property Has Become Contaminated from the Work Left Behind by the
Mineral Company Working It
Companies who mine for minerals are regulated by
strict constraints, meaning contaminating your property by not properly disposing of hazardous
substances is against the law. If this has happened to you, contact us today.
