I just inherited delinquent past due taxes to some oil & gas rights that were in my deceased mother's name. [she died in 1990] She owned no property nor debt and had no will. Can somebody kindly list the steps to transfer the name of ownership without a will?
The tax office located me and the bill came with my name on it as well as my mother's name, so I paid them. That done, within 1 week I recieved a letter from a lawyer indicating some interest. Did he get my name from the public record's office? He never answered my email so I wonder if they just randomly generate letters to newly paid up mineral rights or do you think there is some activity that brought about the interest?
This is a great site! I will gladly "pay it forward" with the help I receive negotiating these new waters. Once I know what I have my hands on, I'll be requesting quality referrals for legal and negotiating services & advice. I just started a new county group for RioBlanco, Colo. Look forward to meeting you.
