My two brothers and I have recently been informed that we are sole heirs to mineral rights in Williams County and Burke County from our long deceased aunt and uncle, who had no families, just us. We knew there were mineral rights, but thought they had long ago been sold. We were approached by a land broker who offered us $2,800.00 for 8 acres and we didn't take it and now have a mineral rights attorney.
My family and I are all new to this and realize the attorney will try and answer all our questions in general as he does not work with the oil companies. We want to know what with the increased interest in this area, once we know we are the legal heirs, do we then skip a middle man and negotiate the best deal insofar as leasing? Any of you out there becoming rich? Jst wondering as we having friends and relatives giving us advice that we realize they don't have the expertise to back up...well meaning friends I guess.
This blog is fantastic as have been searching for something like this for several months now.
