For several reasons, families may need to separate mineral and royalty interests from one another.
Transferring property ownership can be a simple process if the family is willing to communicate, provide the necessary documentation, and in the event of a death, have a probated will in place.
However, if fulfilling any of these requirements is not possible, some additional work and patience might be needed. Individual family member wants and needs can also influence their emotions making the process more difficult.
An experienced and personable mediator that is also tolerant and unbiased can be the bridge to assist families with dividing up mineral and royalty estates.
