Please answer this if any one can help.
My grandfather (deceased) bought many mineral rights to about 160 acres. His will stated all living children, and their children would have right to these rights. These rights were then passed down to my parents (deceased) to myself and brother.
We have had many leases on these properties and received monies off of them.
The dilemma is a new contract has come up with Western Land Services and Iron Forge Explration, LLC. We sent in our signed contract and was rejected. The many cousins that are living had their leases signed comeback with monies.
I have trying to call the gentleman that were in negotiation with and he has turned off his phone. The companies mentioned above will also not return any phone calls or emails.
I am baffled at this. We did our own research and have a copy of my grandfathers will.
What should I do? Is it lawyer time?
Advise much appreciated.
