How much does it cost to have you directly represent me?
Nothing. We invoice the oil and gas company through you. It is important the invoice is sent from you to the company since it is cleaner and is more natural since you hired us. Plus, oil and gas companies tend to prefer it this way. So the bottom line is that you don't need to worry about paying us… you simply need to sign a simple agreement that says you want our company to represent you and we will take care of the rest. It's truly a WIN/WIN situation for everyone involved.
Why does the oil and gas company pay you when you're representing me?
The landowner's representatives and qualified witnesses would be awarded costs if the matter goes before the ERCB or the SRB. It is in the best interest of the oil and gas or utility company to treat the landowner as fairly as possible. It is only fair that the landowner should have qualified rep. right from the start. Therefore, together, we will convince the company it is in everyone's best interest that we get started right away. Now, with DIRECT representation we can make sure the landowner is fairly represented in all negotiations.
Why do I need to hire your company when I'm already dealing with a Land Agent?
The benefits of hiring us are as follows:
A) You get DIRECT representation. This allows for more freedom on our part to act on your behalf and protect your interests.
B) You get access to our proprietary The Landowner App™ for FREE! The Landowner App™ manages all your well sites and pipeline, letting you know critical information with a click of a button such as rental reviews, check status, etc. It also allows you to easily communicate your issues and concerns and gives us the ability to track them all and make sure they are dealt with. Click Here to learn more (this benefit alone is worth hiring us for).
C) You get to deal with ONE company who will act on your behalf for all future oil and gas related activity. You still maintain control in all the negotiations and we simply make sure you are fairly represented and all issues are dealt with in a timely fashion. Wouldn't it be nice to trust one company who will advise you going forward?
D) You get access to our entire staff which includes experienced, licensed land agents, a lawyer, an environmentalist, and an administrator.
E) You get the truth. You get to benefit from our years of experience negotiating on behalf of the oil and gas companies and also being on the other side of the fence as landowners ourselves. We will make sure you are clear on everything so that you can make a more well-informed decision. We will do our best to let you know both the advantages and disadvantages of anything the oil and gas company is wanting to do.
F) You do NOT pay us. This could be the best benefit of all! Our job is to save your time and help you get more money. We will work hard to make sure you are fairly represented and you don't need to pay us anything.
What does it mean to be fairly represented?
It means that we will directly represent you and you're interests. We are not suggesting that land agents that represent the oil and gas company are not being fair. It's just a lot harder for them to truly represent your interests since they are being hired by the oil and gas company. We are being hired by you! That means it's in our best interest to make sure we deal with all your issues in a timely fashion AND help you get more money in the long run.
How can you help me get more money?
According to the law the oil and gas company has the right to access the minerals they own. That means both parties needs to come to an agreement. The oil and gas company has a standard method of compensating landowners for surface leases and right of ways. Most of the time the compensation is reasonable. However, a lot of landowners would like to know for sure that their neighbours aren't getting a better deal. We ensure that you get the best deal possible. And when you have rental renewals we make sure you get the current, best rental rates.
How do I get started?
Easy. Just call us or fill in the form on our website. We will meet with you and get your signature that we have the right to represent you going forward for all oil and gas related activity on your land.
