My neighbor owns a 100 acres farm. The mineral title shows a partial reservation in the 1970's when it was sold of two-thirds of the oil and gas rights. This has left him with 1/3 interest. The previous reservation has been inherited by multiple people that are not on same page as far as leasing. Will a gas company lease his 1/3 interest? What happens if a party or parties who have a partial interest refuse to sign lease. Can you sue for division in ohio?
If a company wants to lease that specific 100 acres then yes, they'll sign his 1/3 interest and then track down the other owners. If other parties refuse to sign then that's the company's problem.
