In most cases, an oil company in bankruptcy must pay current royalties to its mineral owners with whom it has active oil and gas leases. Past royalties are often treated as claims against the bankruptcy estate. Whether the claim is secured or unsecured, or priority or nonpriority, depends on the...Read more »
My husband knew something wasn't right with the install, we had them come over several times as our humidity was was out of control. Every time a tech came over, they insisted that all we needed was to spend thousands more to get a whole home dehumidifier. One time they were at my home inspecting... Read more »
Without knowing the facts of your case in detail it's difficult to provide you with an answer. You could consult with an attorney who can review the facts of your case and present you with the options. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
A Michigan attorney would know best because local laws can vary by jurisdiction. But your question remains open for three weeks. In some jurisdictions, it's considered a misdemeanor. In other's, it's treated as a fire and safety violation, with the onus on the operator of the facility. In between,...Read more »
I'm the Asst. Treasurer of the Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company, Inc., a 501(c)(3) certified organization. We noticed tax on an invoice for propane from Norbert E. Mitchell (our supplier.) They said, "you are not exempt from the CT - LP- Gross Receipts Tax". Is this true, and if so, are there... Read more »
You are confusing your federal tax-filing status with state sales taxes imposed on most if not all corporations. Just because the FEDERAL IRS has given you tax-free status does not make you exempt for state sales taxes. If it did there would be zillions of 501s out there.
The amount of money involved is way too small to be of interest to most lawyers. FYI, the law is not designed to solve every little problem that comes your way during this lifetime; the Latin phrase for this rule is "De minimus non curat lex."
Pay the balance and then sue the deadbeat who...Read more »
Land lord was notified via text message on the 21th. Promised to have someone fix it. It has not been done as of 7/6/19 nor has she responded to my text I sent 1 week ago asking about the status of the repairs. I have not had any hot water in my home since 6/21. I have rented a hotel room once a... Read more »
While your written lease terms will control this unusual situation==generally speaking--landlords are responsible to make sure that their leased property is suitable for living; and tenants do not have to remain in structures that are not in livable condition. Absent some unforeseen issues, IMO,...Read more »
A place to start here could be to contact a Texas attorney who deals with consumer issues/small contract disputes. The Energy, Oil and Gas section is more about large matters involving drilling rights, mineral rights, etc. Good luck
Pipe runs straight down property line with 25' just for access easements on each side. Now there is going to be a turn on to my property about 3 to 4 feet in towards my property from NW corner. This will change easement agreement, pushing into my property. I was never notified and they are on my... Read more »
If I understand your question and facts, your stating that the new pipe line will be on your property outside of the established easement which would require your consent otherwise you would be entitled to some compensation or a removal of the pipe line back within the easement already established....Read more »
Parents didn't give permission for anything listed in the minors name to be conveyed or sold. Grandparents listed themselves as custodians. Conveyed everything to themselves from the children.Grandchildren never received anything on the oil and gas revenues.
I wrote "Disputed" on the Division Order and sent it back after inheriting a portion of the lease. Producer (Butkin Oil) takes 80%, by their own admission and won't say where the other 20% goes. My owner interest is less than .002%. It also appears that I am paying state taxes for the total... Read more »
Oil and gas law is complicated. The operator typically has the lion's share of the revenues because it pays for all the expenses and therefore has all the risk. If they spend a million and the hole is dry they eat all of the cost. However, a royalty interest owner pays nothing.
I am a contractor for a large utility company and on a recent job i absorbed a tremendous amount of profit loss because a local municipality did not locate abandoned underground utilities in an easement. By not doing so it cost us to go over our budget. Is there any way to hold them accountable? I... Read more »
Your best (only) bet is to complain about this situation to a few members of the city council and ask them how to file a "complaint" about the incident. Most if not all municipal governments carry liability insurance to avoid having to pay "damages" for not doing their job: maintaining all city...Read more »
You could try contacting them through one of their numbers. Those steel plates are used throughout the City for temporary road repairs following excavations on underground utilities. Depending on how they are seated, the plates could bang when vehicles pass over them. Hopefully they could send out...Read more »

I use electric company A ever since I moved into the apartment and was required to get it in my name. Now, 4 months into living here I get contacted by the company saying they paid a bill from company B and want me to pay them back. I have never used company B, didn't sign up or anything. Why would... Read more »
Sounds strange. I would want to see the invoices first before paying for the alleged invoices. I am not sure how two different utility companies can service your one residence unless one provides the gas and the other provides electric. Trust but verify.
