Inherited my mineral rights from my mother in Carter County by a “Quitclaim” deed. She got her mineral rights from my dad through his will, so not through a mineral deed. No one is challenging my ownership and I have documentation of purchases of royalty interest back to the early 1900’s.
Last year I received several different offers for my royalty. The potential purchasers all wanted me to transfer everything to them with a full “Mineral” deed with all of its warranties. What would be my exposure? If I have my dad’s estate probated will that give me a clear deed so I can give these buyers a mineral deed?
