Hi all. I am brand new to this site and this subject. I have a long story and need a little insight.
I was called by Springbok Energy and asked to sell some mineral rights. They gave me the legal description and it was in a hot area. Well I realize that I do own some mineral rights in Lea County NM, but not the legal description they gave. So, I called the courthouse, I called abstract companies, and ultimately hired a land man to give me further information as Springbok would not. No one could find any of this information. Now they are contacting my sister and brother as I would not sell without some proof of ownership and without signing a contract that was a blanket contract stating Lea County ownership instead of the exact location. How else do you go about this? Why do they keep calling if we don't own that area? I also found out we own quite a large area, about 1 section in Chavez county and I don't know how to find out about that one either. I feel kind of lost with all this stuff!! Thanks for some insight!!
