Good morning all!
We just found out we have mineral rights because one of the heirs brokered a deal to sell them and we just got paperwork in the mail. We are not selling because we haven’t been given enough time to determine what we have or what it’s worth. This same heir has also been receiving all of the royalties for quite a few years. I’ve heard of escrow accounts being used to hold royalties until estates are probated. How do I get that started? How do I get the companies to stop sending the checks to just one heir until we get this all sorted out? Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
