On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Real Estate Law on Oct 27, 2014.
We have been talking about the different kinds of property rights, particularly mineral rights and the rights to the land above mineral deposits. Pennsylvania is dealing more and more with issues like this now that advances in technology have made the Marcellus Shale easier to tap into. Mineral rights were easy to ignore or to forget about when they were not worth anything. Now, there is a lot of money at stake.
