Does your client actually own the mineral rights under their property?
With the rising costs of oil and gas, mineral rights have become more valuable, and landowners are enticed to lease or sell mineral rights.
By default real estate is sold with both surface rights and mineral rights in a fee simple estate, however a title to a property can be transferred, bought and sold, without including the mineral rights. This is a common practice in areas that are known to hold valuable mineral deposits such as oil and gas.
The goal of this course is to help brokers understand how complex mineral rights are in Colorado and what rules regulate them.
