As property passes from owner to owner over time, an error or a change in the legal description of the property may occur and go unnoticed. An owner, far in the past, may have retained the mineral rights to the property that was being sold. Future purchasers may not have noticed or may not have cared. Those retained mineral rights may have been sold many times over by the time the current property owner discovers that he or she does not own the rights to what is under his or her land.

With the development of the Marcellus Shale formation under way, many property owners have a keen interest in the mineral rights to their property. This has led to disputes over who has title to the mineral rights of a particular piece of property. Our Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, law firm offers experienced help from title dispute lawyers to clients throughout the area, including in Scranton and Allentown.
