We had a 3-year lease with Chesapeake. The primary 3-year term expired on June 5, 2015, and we were not renewed. (Our lease included parcels in Unity, Center, and Washington townships.)
Did they release your lease at the courthouse? If I were you I would make sure that you are free and clear of those "rascals"
We are currently working with our attorney to obtain a "release of lease" from Chesapeake and get it recorded at the courthouse. (Of course, they did not voluntarily file this document for us!)
Robin Hood hit the nail squarly on the head...and was being diplomatic using the term "rascals".
