Question
Hello, I just purchased all mineral rights and estate of 10 acres & 16 acres. The neighbor receives royalties from XTO. How do I get royalites from my acres? I submitted my deed to XTO, but I think I am wording it wrong, as they came back with, do you want to lease your minerals?
Thanks.

Answer
You need to tell them what you just told me.  You probably should call them and ask to speak to someone in their land department about getting the division orders changed, but you are also right to put it in writing.  Let me know if they don't get it fixed for you right away.
