My dad left me producing mineral deeds when he died in 1978, I just found out that he had left them to me. they were in a trust and the deeds were not conveyed until 1998. so thats 20 years of royalty checks that were going to my dead dad that my mother was cashing.
in `1998 the papers were sent to the proper counties, but not to the operators. so to sum it up, I did not find out about this till last year. dont the operators have to do a title check.... do I have any recourse? my moms dead, so is there in way to recoup the losses.
everyone is saying tough luck..... she died in 2007, and my sister maintained the deciet
