Oil and Gas Lawyers Who Can Help With Mineral Right Sales
The team of Rokisky, McCune, Wilharm, & Blair are licensed professionals and have helped landowners in negotiating with the oil and gas companies for years throughout the Appalachian Region, whether it be for leasing or selling mineral rights. Remember that your initial offer tends to be lower (and in some case, much, much lower) than what the buyer is ultimately willing to pay and that the written agreements heavily favor the oil and gas company. Our attorneys want to guide you to a more lucrative deal for your mineral rights with an agreement that is more advantageous for you. Negotiating a better deal can save you a lot of stress in the future and make sure you are compensated fairly for your valued properly.
How can an oil and gas lawyer help you with mineral right sales?
A lot of issues can arise in mineral right sales, such as title issues, tax matters, the buyer backing out or wanting to pay less money than agreed to, deed language, etc. Our experienced oil and gas attorneys help make sure there are no surprises and save you a great deal of stress.
Why having an attorney helps you negotiate for better mineral right contracts?
For starters, having helped many mineral owners throughout the region sell their mineral rights, our experienced oil and gas attorneys have the added benefit of knowing what companies are paying what prices in different areas. Further, we are very experienced in drafting documentation relative to mineral sale, mineral leasing, etc. Often landowners will look at the purchase agreement and deed and think that it doesn’t look that complicated, so why use an attorney? If you are not an experienced oil and gas lawyer, do you know what the terms in those documents mean, and the implications thereof? When reviewing these documents, you may not understand the use of many of the oil and gas jargon/terms. More importantly, when you are new to oil and gas transactions, you don’t know what has been left out or missing in the document.
