Q. I'm thinking of buying some land. Someone else owns the mineral rights. Can they drill on my land as much as they want?
A: In areas where mineral exploitation is common, the mineral owner might choose to exercise his rights to access and mine the minerals owned. The landowner is protected by state and local laws regulating the period of drilling or the depth of excavation. To evaluate a potential investment, consult a lawyer in your area experienced in mineral law. Good luck.
Q. If a seller knowingly does not disclose info on the Disclosure form does the current owner have any recourse?
A: The first step is to contact the seller through your realtor and explain the situation to look for an equitable solution first. In case you decide to sue, you have to start out by going after every single party involved, then different parties will be removed as they're exonerated. Good luck.
