I recently found out that I inherited some acreage in the NE part of Sec 7 Block 33 H&TC RR.Survey.  I was sent a letter by a landman who offered $600/ac lease bonus and 20% royalty.  based on what I have read this seems low.  Does anyone have an idea about the going rate in this area of the county?  Thank you

Here are the online reports from the Abilene, Odessa, and Midland papers. The Midland paper is probably the best, but has not updated for a couple weeks for some reason.

Thanks, Mike for the suggestions.  I'll look for the county records.

I would check the Will of the party who passed on to see if it leaves the propety to family members.  Was the property in an estate?  Sale of land

you would need the propety location in Texas, Lot and Block numbers and then go to the county recorders office and do your home work on the property.  Have the Taxs been paid on the land?  You will need as much information as you have availabe from the deceased family member records and these may go back many years.

My suggestions.

Can someone tell me where I can find information on the sale of land in the past couple years?  Trying to find out how/if ownership has passed down to me and other relatives due to death in family.  Thanks.

I have inherited a share in section 63 block 33 and have recently been advised by my partnership that the majority shareholder (also acting general managing partner) wants to form an LLC. Through the last few years he has offered to buy my share. Dont know if i should agree, and is there hope for my land?

Answer to:  A 23 stage "PEAK" completion!  When the well has been drilled to maximun depth explosive charges are inserted into the line which blow holes in the casing and wall to penitrate the earth.  Frac fluid is then injected under high pressure to fracture the earth and allow product to enter the pipeline which is the start of production.

A short answer.

Lease Bonus varies depending upon the area.  If you are in central, western, or northern Ward County your bonus offer could easily be over $800 per acre, and the other terms should also be addressed, such as a 1/4 royalty interest and other clauses.  You should contact an attorney in the West Texas area who is familiar with the leasing trends and problems to assist you in getting a fair lease.  At least do not agree to the lease terms without checking out your offers with other mineral owners in the area.
