Colorado Land Use Lawyer
Representing Clients Nationwide
When a landowner leases mineral rights to a gas or oil company, there are often two contracts that are signed. The first contract establishes the terms of the lease, including royalties paid to the landowner. The second contract, called a "surface use agreement," establishes the manner in which the oil or gas company can utilize the land in exploring for valuable minerals. This contract may include stipulations regarding where drilling can take place, as well as what can be built to facilitate the drilling, such as access roads and storage structures.
If you have leased mineral rights to a mining company and you feel that the company has utilized your land in an improper manner, you are entitled to take legal action in an effort to recover damages. Improper land use can result in significant consequences, such as the devaluation of your property. You may also be held liable for damages that are caused to neighboring properties as a result of the company's actions.
