Mineral rights are an important part of land ownership for many investors and can be bought, leased or sold. While landowners may have surface rights to a piece of property, dig below the surface and you’ll reach the zone where mineral rights take effect. Mineral rights are the rights to explore, extract and sell the oil, gas, minerals, or other natural products found beneath the land surface. Let Southern Abstract Company in Bartlesville, OK, know if mineral rights are a part of your transaction for land, so that they are included in the services we will provide to you.
Aptly-named, surface rights are just that — the rights to the surface of a parcel of land. This includes includes physical structures such as a house, garage, barn or shed. But it also includes the right to plant crops, to lease property for a wind farm and even to dig into the land to bury underground storage tanks, such as wells or septic systems. However, a person with surface rights only cannot lease their land to an oil or gas company for exploration and extraction purposes. This is because the owner doesn’t have legal ownership over the mineral deposits below the surface of their property.
