I own mineral rights on 2 parcels of land in Ritchie Co, WV. One is 150 acres and the other is 487 acres, totaling 637 acres. Long story short-- My brother received paper work to sign in Jan 2018. Two days ago he called to see what I was going to do. I never received any, so I called and spoke with an H G energy rep. She said she would mail docs for me to sign. Lo and behold, 2 hours later a land man called and said he was driving to Ohio, taking hubby and I to lunch and would get my signatures. He said now we would get 12 1/2 percent on new deal. I was a bit apprehensive because he seemed to be in such a big hurry. So my questions are: Do these companies negotiate rates on these amendments? Is there ever a signing bonus? Do I need an attorney? I apologize if this issue as already been covered. Thanking you in advance for any insight you have.
