Estate Planning

Selling mineral rights is a wise choice when planning for your family’s future. The demand for valuable resources constantly changes. Because of this, the value of the estate that you leave to your family could change drastically in a short period of time. After a loved one passes away, families must go through probate court to secure full legal rights to property left to them in the estate. If property is secured in a trust, families can skip probate court, but still have to contact a lawyer in order to secure property. This process may take months to complete and bring costly fees.

By choosing to sell mineral rights, you ensure that your family gets the most out of the estate left to them. Family members are unable to sell mineral rights left to them while the property is going through probate court. If drilling demand spikes or plummets during this time, your family will not have legal rights to respond to the changing market. Selling rights today gives the peace of mind that your family will be provided for when you are no longer around.

Selling for Estate Planning

Mineral rights are an investment, and the value of this investment is constantly changing due to its volatile nature. Taking a look at the oil and gas industry is helpful to determine the smartest decision. Texas is a booming place for mineral production, but the market remains a volatile place. Technology is finding more efficient ways to use gas and other sources of energy each year. Many executives of the largest oil and gas companies think the peak oil demand may be coming in our lifetime. Selling mineral rights ensures that you take advantage of today’s boom.

After you pass away, your mineral rights will be locked up in your estate for an indefinite period of time while they pass through probate court or other legal proceedings. During this period, which could last months, your family will be unable to sell your rights. If the market booms during this period, your family will be unable to act on it and could miss a great opportunity. Instead, sell your mineral rights now so that your family will have access to these funds after you are gone.

If you feel that it is still too soon to sell, our brokers can discuss the pros and cons of setting up a trust for your mineral rights. A trust can help your family skip probate court after you die to access the rights, but they will still have to work with a lawyer to procure the rights.
