How to Search Mineral Rights in Texas

Texas Star Seperator

There are a couple resources you can use to do a Texas mineral rights search.

Texas File: If you want to search deeds / property records in Texas to determine the mineral rights owner, we recommend Texas File.   Note that this is a paid service if you want to download the source deeds.   Using Texas File, you can search mineral rights in Texas and determine how the current owner of the mineral rights is.   Find the source deed where you acquired any property you own.  Then see if the deed specifies whether you own the mineral rights or if they were reserved by the previous owner.  Even if the deed does not say the minerals were reserved, it does not mean you own the mineral rights.  It’s possible the person who sold you the land did not have the minerals to deed.  You would need to search all prior deeds in connection with your land to determine if you own the mineral rights.  Check out our next section which talks about hiring a landman which may be necessary if you want 100% confirmation you own the mineral rights.

Mineral Holders:  If you want to search for a specific person and see if they own mineral rights in Texas, you can use Mineral Holders.  Mineral Holders is a good way to search Texas mineral rights owners to determine how is currently being paid for their ownership.  The records on this website are pulled from county property tax records.  They will show you who is actively receiving oil and gas royalty income.

Hiring a Landman

Texas Star Seperator

Using a landman to determine if you own mineral rights in Texas is considered one of the best options for finding out if you own mineral rights and, if so, how much. A landman is a professional who specializes in researching and reviewing property records to determine mineral rights ownership. They will search the records back to the beginning of time to determine how many acres of oil and gas mineral rights you own.

It is important to note that these searches can be costly, with prices ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, depending on how complex the search is. However, it is considered well worth the investment if you are looking to make a significant decision or investment based on mineral rights ownership.

It’s also worth mentioning that despite the cost of a mineral rights search in Texas, it’s possible that the landman will determine that you don’t own any oil and gas mineral rights.

Hiring a landman to conduct a mineral rights search is a reliable and accurate way to determine mineral rights ownership in Texas, even if it has a cost associated. It will give you the certainty and knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your land and resources.
