I have question maybe someone here can help with. Recently I was reminded of the Mineral Rights my mother owned in Woodward Co. She passed six years ago and at the time I'd forgotten about her having had this interest, until someone recently made contacted me with an offer to purchase. My mother estate has already gone through Probate in another state, where she lived and died, and I'm wondering what is the best way to go about getting these mineral rights put in my name. From what I've learned we can either start a new Probate process in Woodward Co. or sign a Affidavit of Heirship. The person wishing to purchase suggested we could sell to him and he'd do what is called a "Quite Title Action."
Has anyone had any similar experience? I'm not real sure how the Quite Title Action would work, and am trying to decide what would be the best way to legally inherit my mother's Mineral Rights and be able to either lease or sell them.
