query: title insurance affirmative coverage oil & gas
A typical residential title search is not adequate when you are interested in minerals, oil, and gas. You should notify your title insurer up-front that you want affirmative coverage. They may not have the ability to handle your needs. Look for an attorney or title company who specializes in mineral rights. Affirmative coverage is available once the rights are established. Expect to pay more for the search and for the coverage.
