Just a note to check in with you and see if you were able to get the mineral rights in your purchase?
Some properties have them, some don't.
Is there drilling in your area?
For a long time in organized developments we often thought the owners did not have the mineral rights. We always thought either the farmer kept them, or if not the developer got them.
But that is not always true.

Several years ago Bryan/College Station went through a transition with mineral rights and they went from something that was common for sellers to have to something that is now exceedingly rare. Most owners that are selling that do have mineral rights will be very reluctant to sell since even leases that were worthless are now generating income from the newer technologies.

In many cases, the rights to not convey to a new owner. It is up to the person who holds those, whether or not they wish to convey all or part of the rights. However in most cases, you will find that is not the case. In very rare cases.
