A landman can help with an affidavit of heirship, which is often required to transfer the ownership of mineral rights from one person to another.
Very often, new mineral owners do not know exactly what they have inherited. A landman can do an extensive title search to figure out what you (and your family) own.
A landman can help you estimate the value of your mineral rights. Depending on how much you own, this might be an experienced-based estimate or the landman may recommend a mineral rights appraiser for a precise valuation.
A landman can help you get into pay status on producing oil and gas wells by performing curative work on the title.
Having an attorney and/or landman negotiate an oil and gas lease on your behalf is usually well worth the extra expense. Attorneys may be better for the prcice language and a landman may be better at coming to mutually agreeable terms.
There are a lot of helpful people on the Mineral Rights Forum, including landmen who would happy to do some work for you (for a fee, of course).
