My sister, niece and I recently leased mineral rights on property in Reeves Co Texas. I thought we had someone preparing a quit claim deed for my niece to sign transferring her interest to my sister and I which followed my mothers wishes in her will. Now, however, that is not to be since this person doesn't wish to become involved. My niece is fine with this.
I am thinking that perhaps a title company might be able to do this, but don't have any idea who to contact. Any suggestions? I have a copy of the deed and an affidavit of heirship as well as my mothers will. This was not probated in California as it wasn't required. Now, however, I find that we should have done it in Texas because of the mineral rights. Found out 1 day before the 4th anniversary of my mom's death!
We really don't want to leave the title as it is. I'm afraid that if I try to do it myself, we will find that we have a title problem if we decide to lease again in the future.
