I am sure many of you are familiar with the myriad of papers that are mailed to us as mineral rights owners. I am wondering what, out of all this paper, is good and/or necessary to keep.
I am mainly concerned with the following:
documents from the Corporation Commission of the State of Oklahoma
any other legal proceedings (bankruptcy notices, for instance)
Are the laws on how long I am required to keep any of these? Check stubs seem somewhat practical to keep, but I’d be happy to be rid of them if it’s not necessary. I don’t even understand half of what the documents from the corporation commission mean to begin with, and they just take up tons of space. I would like to get rid of anything I don’t need to keep, so please share your advice!
