In an effort to expedite questions concerning the Haynesville Shale and your property, Cindy Johnston has assigned more deputies to help with ‘walk-ins’ who are trying to ascertain whether or not they own their mineral rights.
While the Clerk’s office cannot tell you for sure if you do own your rights, they will search your title back for ten years to see if there were any mineral reservations or leases on the property. It would then be up to you to find out through the Conservation Office if your section is affected by production.
To save on ‘phone tag’ and crowds in the office, Cindy has set up an email address to deal with these inquiries. It is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your complete name and property information, address, etc., and let her know specifically what you are looking for. You should have a reply within 24 hours.
If you need to clarify anything, or need more assistance, you may phone the Clerk’s office at 965-2336.
