Correct deed on file since 2006. Probate not the problem. No other oil companies have had this problem with having the right mineral deed to work from. Do they owe us the 12% penalty from date of first sale? How do we get them to pay? Do we have to go to court?
You need to find out from the company whether they have any title requirements that need to be fixed. If you believe that you have clear title send them a certified letter with an IRS W-9 along with your address. Companies are unlikely to pay 12% interest unless they are pressed. If there is an...Read more »
Do they pay 12% for the nine months or only the 3 overdue months? They were trying to use an old title that was not current. I consider this their responsibility to have the correct title as it is easily available. Is this correct? This is for 6 new wells. I am still waiting on my first check.
In Oklahoma, operators are required to remit payment within six months from the date of the first sale of production. Failure to do so can trigger late interest payments pursuant to 52 Okla. Stat. § 570.10. You are correct that if you have marketable title, you are entitled to 12% interest on late...Read more »
If the lease is still valid, either because it is in its primary term or has been extended into its secondary term due to production on it, then the lease is still good and the company (and your dad's heirs) must honor it. However, in such a situation, the oil company can escrow any royalties...Read more »
Terminated from contract role after weeks of increasingly hostile treatment from my supervisor (partner at the firm) & another project lead (new contract worker. Old friend of supervisor). I received entirely positive feedback for months until they botched a proposal and lost the client. The... Read more »
It's also a huge city which is actually very small. Professionals rarely have time to ruin other professionals' lives. They also don't want to give some law firm ammunition for a lawsuit. Remember, it's a one-party consent state to record others so I assume that I am being...Read more »
The city came in and condemn the home due to tampering with PG&e and they said they were condemning the home due to insufficient lighting but yet they want $7,000 for the bill on PG&e that I don't have and I'm not going to pay what can happen to my home due to not paying
You could, but it does not look like the type of case that an attorney would accept on a contingency basis. You could face issues in showing the chain of custody of the sample, proper protocols used in taking the sample, tests of the gas station's tanks, your own vehicle's maintenance and...Read more »
There is no uniform nationwide policy on this. Your post remains open for a month and it's possible that people working in the department of motor vehicles, public safety, department of transportation, or law enforcement (traffic/highway) could be closer to this issue than most lawyers would...Read more »

As a general rule, at the completion of a probate proceeding in Oklahoma the district court will enter an order that all assets remaining in the estate be distributed to the heirs-at-law if there is no will or to the legatees/devisees if there is a will. If there was a probate proceeding you should...Read more »
My gas Bill's tripled dec and Jan. $140 in dec and $193 jan. I live in an efficiency smaller than most hotel rooms. I paid less in 3 bedroom houses monthly in past even in winter. I keep bugging and disputing and landlords avoiding. Bill is due Friday. Can I call gas company out without his... Read more »
I assume that you live in a building which houses more than one tenant; that neither you nor any other tenant has its own gas meter; that you have lived at the building for a long time and that you have a written lease with a term longer than month-to-month; that you have read the lease carefully...Read more »
I am only licensed in Texas, but I suspect Oklahoma law may be similar to Texas law in this situation. If the executor of an estate has not included the mineral rights in a deed from the estate to the beneficiaries, and this violates the terms of the will, you need to seek legal assistance...Read more »
It depends what you're battling them about. Oil spill from one of their fuel barges, you need an environmental lawyer. Right-of-way or easement with one of their power lines, you need a land use or real estate lawyer. Electric bill issue, you need a consumer or business lawyer. Depending on...Read more »
Two years ago we, as royalty owners with Pioneer Natural Resources, sold a percent of our mineral interest in Upton County to OneMap Mineral Services LLC. All Division Orders were signed by all parties and money exchanged hands. But apparently Pioneer dropped the ball and mishandled some of the... Read more »
This is certainly an unfortunate situation. Whether or not Pioneer is allowed to withhold all royalty due to you depends on the language of the most recent division order for these royalties that you signed, as well as the terms of the oil and gas lease that you or your predecessor in interest...Read more »
