In 2013 I leased two sections of mineral rights in McLain County. I relied on the lessee’s research to determine my net mineral acres. I did compare there research to numbers in the past going back many years and though not exactly the same, they were close enough to proceed. I renewed these leases again in 2016 for a higher per acre rate but the same net mineral acres. I recently sold both sections in December, 2019 and the purchaser through their research discovered that I had more net mineral acres than I previously knew.
Do I, at this point in time, have a legal basis to go back to the lessee and request payment for the NMA’s that I was not paid for?
