Leasing mineral rights or investing in mineral rights is a great opportunity to gain a large return. But you need to do your homework to know the right way to make any investment. Oil and gas companies regularly contact people to encourage them to invest. If you go by their word, it could be really difficult to achieve your expected 1031 exchange capital gains. We know you want to maximize your benefits, so don’t take a wrong step or be trapped by acting too quickly. Read the points below to expand your knowledge.

  1. Make sure they have not contacted any other members of your family. For a larger deal, the companies may try to involve many members of the same family. Beware of this and deal with the company as a singular representative for your family.

  2. Do know with whom you are speaking? Know the person you are dealing with, whether he is an employee of the oil and Gas Company, a middleman or a broker. Ask multiple questions to ascertain their true identity.

  3. If you own separate land tracts, you should demand separate oil and gas leases from the company. Simply put, this will increase your profit. The mineral field is a dynamic sector to be explored for a betterment.
