I’m glad I found this site.
I have a question. My family was receiving a yearly royalty check for many years from a property that they owned the mineral rights to. The money was split equally by 4 heirs. Once the lease ended of course the checks stopped.
The local recorder and auditor website are very limited and from what I can tell the current owner of the land has a mineral lease signed with a company. To my knowledge, none of the heirs ever signed a deed that transferred any rights to any other owner.
Who is a good local company that can look into this, as we are out of state? I believe a reputable title company can complete a title search and should be able to start the process.
Thanks for your help
