A family member had mineral right interest in Howard County TX. She passed in the late 80’s. Per her will, her sister inherited and she has since passed. My mother and sibling would be next in line. My mother has passed.
I have confirmed the existence of lease or leases under the original family member. I have gathered all the documents the company holding the leases requested. It notes on their form that a deed must be recorded before they will transfer. I am trying to determine if I need a Landman or does a title company search.
I am at a crossroads and just trying to determine the best and economical course to take. I am able to travel to county clerk’s office if it would help.
