Royalties in Suspense?

Nationwide Heirship Research (NHR) works with mineral rights owners and Oil & Gas Producers to distribute money held in suspense to the correct parties.  There are many ways this asset could have been suspended, but the most likely way is that the asset was owned by an ancestor of yours.  When ownership changes, it is the new owner’s responsibility to notify and validate their claim to the asset.

How can we help you?  First, we ascertain that you are the rightful owner of the asset.  Second, we document the title gap between your ancestor and you by identifying the proper legal claimants and collecting the documentation needed to prove or disprove entitlement.  Third, we make the proper application to the custodian of the asset and fulfill all its requirements for vesting the asset in you as the rightful owner.  This process often takes a few weeks, but that can vary depending on the complexity of the chain of ownership. 

If you are interested in talking further with us about how we can restore you to full ownership of the asset in question, please call us at (304) 916-7500.

What happens next?

When you chose to use our services, NHR will obtain all necessary documents such as court proceedings and vital records and will prepare a claim on your behalf to recover the asset.  

What does this cost?

There is no out-of-pocket cost to you.  NHR will cover all administrative issues and fees.  If your claim is denied you will not owe anything.  When your claim is successful NHR will only charge a reasonable percentage of the currently-held value of the asset, leaving you with by far the vast majority of the value of the asset and ALL the future earnings on it. 

Why should I use NHR?

If you attempted to undertake this process on your own, likely you would not be able to follow the ownership trail because some information comes from specialized sources that may not be available to the general public.  Also, you likely would have to hire a lawyer and pay attorney’s fees, which can be as high as 40% of the current value and future earnings of the asset.

NHR doesn’t take a cut of the future earnings  generated by the asset; we only charge a reasonable percentage of the currently-held value, leaving you with by far the vast majority of the current value of the asset and ALL the future earnings on it. 

What do I need to do?

When you chose to use our services, we will send you forms to sign authorizing us to proceed on your behalf.  We may also request a copy of documents you may have which will facilitate the claim process.
