Royalty Beneficiaries & Disputes

Table of Contents

    If you are a royalty beneficiary, losing your royalties could mean a substantial blow to your financial security. Without a way to pay for basic necessities, losing your royalties or not receiving the full expected amount of royalties could be detrimental to your situation, the well-being of anyone you provide for, or anyone else with a legitimate interest in the royalties. If you have not been paid the right amount of royalties or if you suspect that your royalties have been wrongfully taken from you, speak immediately with a skilled Texas oil and gas attorney at Herring Law Firm.

    What Are Royalties?

    If you decide to lease your mineral rights, an oil company can offer you financial compensation. In exchange for the rights to develop or produce oil and gas on your property, an oil or gas company can offer royalties or bonuses. In this way, both oil companies and landowners can reap the financial success of an oil-rich property and keep the legitimate interests of both parties in check.

    To ensure that you receive the proper amount of royalties, speak with a Texas royalty beneficiary lawyer at Herring Law Firm. The attorney at the firm can offer assistance to both landowners and oil and gas companies in the energy sector.
