There is likely not a thing that you can do to force payment.
If the land company performed in a typical fashion, then the draft could be not honored with no repercussion to the Drawee.
See the above link for suggestions on getting your lease released.
Yes, hindsight is 20/20. We no longer accept drafts for any of our mineral lease agreements we sign. We also require that the entity we sign lease agreements with are an actual Operating O&G Company that will be drilling the well. We would not be interested in signing a lease agreement with anyone who is going to sell it to an Operator and make a quick buck off of us, the mineral owners. That way we are in a better position to negotiate better terms. If a land agent does not wish to disclose who he/she represents, then we tell them we cannot proceed in negotiating a lease agreement. I have not had any problems with this request. It sounds like your Family situation is similar to mine and you have extended family members owning an undivided interest in the mineral estate. We found it better to have one person manage the minerals for all Family members and your negotiating leverage is much better if all owners cooperate. I know, easier said than done.
