Mineral Rights Lawyer In North Dakota And Minnesota

In the 1950s, '60s and '70s, vast amounts of real estate were purchased without receiving the rights to the minerals in those properties. Since that time, the issue of mineral rights has become much more important, especially with the current oil drilling operations throughout western North Dakota.

If you are buying or selling a property in North Dakota or Minnesota, it is important to identify and address any issues you may have regarding rights to the minerals in your land. An experienced real estate lawyer can help.

Resolving Mineral Rights Disputes With Your Land

The lawyers at Brudvik Law Office are all North Dakota natives, and we understand the unique issues facing landowners in the Midwest. With every real estate transaction, you may have questions regarding who owns the mineral rights, especially after a property has been passed down through multiple generations.

Common questions can include:

  • Does my parents' estate plan really give me all the rights to the minerals on their land?
  • Was a probate process that took place decades ago handled correctly?
  • Who retained the rights of inheritance as family members married, divorced and remarried?
  • Will I need to obtain a “mineral title opinion”?
