Protect Your Mineral Rights
Opening the mailbox doesn’t yield that many surprises, but a request for an easement for a transmission line or a letter related to a wind or oil and gas lease can pose questions. You may have existing leases and wonder if you are still being paid fairly. Or it could come up in estate planning, for example, how do you transfer mineral rights to loved ones?
