Hi all, We have found a property that we really love but have hit a bit of a snag. The person who originally owned it reserved the right to 1/2 of the royalties on any mineral sales/lease. It is in KY and there was apparently some sort of oil boom there in the 50's/60's. There is a capped oil well somewhere on the property. The deed also states that the landowner (us) has the exclusive right to lease, in other words old owner can't say "hey, I own 1/2 the oil rights on this property and these fellas are here to install a pump and get mine out." I don't imagine that we would ever try to sell anything in the way of minerals but dh doesn't like the idea in case we ever want to sell the property as it might be a problem to some buyers. We don't intend to sell it later, but you never know what life might bring. So, if you loved everything else about the property, would this stop you from buying it? Thanks much!
