In 2018 the Ohio Supreme Court Upheld the fact that all Oil and Gas Leases and Right of Way Contracts have been Real Estate Contracts since before the Oil & Gas Boom. It has been illegal for a Landman to Negotiate these leases and contracts. Any document signed during the violation of Ohio Law is Void in a Court of Law.
Those we elected worked hard to fix this issue for the Oil & Gas Producers, and as of March 2019 Landmen are once again free to roam the hills and valleys of Our Great State, I believe You know what that means.
But can they negotiate Your Signature without telling the TRUTH? Read On.
2006 Ohio Revised Code - 2913.43. Securing Writings by Deception
(A) No person, by deception, shall cause another to execute any writing that disposes of or encumbers property, or by which a pecuniary obligation is incurred.
(B) (1) Whoever violates this section is guilty of securing writings by deception.
This law was violated by every Landman that told You tales to obtain Your Signature.
Ohio isn't as untamed as Texas & Oklahoma, we still have laws on the books that protect Our Citizens.
The only way the New Land Man can avoid Violating 2913.43 is to tell the landowner the TRUTH when he asks for Your Signature (Your Signature Is Everything, don't give it away, make those who want it answer important questions to the point they walk off, if they were trying to defraud You).
This is the TRUTH he/she should tell You:
"The lease and ROW contract You signed are VOID because Landmen failed to have the Required Real Estate License and violated Ohio Law when they Negotiated Your bad lease and fraudulent ROW contracts. Would you please sign these New documents that are also full of fraud that You will regret signing?".
Note: Check that void ROW Contract You signed for the theft of Your Surface Rights, Cardinal Gas owned it all the last time You signed. I have the contract they used and asked me to sign. They didn't get my signature (look for PERPETUITY which means For EVER).
So if the Landman is that honest and You sign after knowing the Truth, Your relatives can declare you incompetent to have signed those documents, as you rightfully were at the time of signing.
I doubt that current Lawyer will agree with me today since have not re-certified to the latest Law Change in the US, but they will be brought up to speed in September.
Don't sign anything those Nice Landmen bring to Your Door. If you already have signed make notes of the Fraud they used to obtain Your Signature. You are protected by 2913.43.
Note to Legislators: Forget trying to change or remove this Revised Code from the books. The 90 day wait period for the change to take place is no longer available, Time has run out.
I have been licensed by a department of Our Federal Government 3 times to Operate in Strict Compliance with the Federal Code Of Regulations. Many Lawyers decline taking on a project with the Federal Government due to the complexity of those Codes. The Ohio Revised Code is Common sense that any Ohio Citizen can read, understand and follow.
Ohio and All Shale Play States will have the Bright Future Promised before the Theft began. Corruption will no longer be tolerated in Our Nation. The Storm is Coming.
Pray for Our President, Our Military, and The NSA who are working the Plan to remove All corruption from Our Nation.
