Gas leases have become an incredibly hot topic in Pennsylvania recently. Many companies that are in the business of finding and drilling for natural gas have been contacting land owners, hoping that the owners will quickly sign gas leases to allow the gas companies to drill for gas on the owner's property.
YOU SHOULD NOT SIGN A GAS LEASE WITHOUT TALKING WITH A LICENSED, KNOWLEDGEABLE ATTORNEY.
Many landowners see these leases as "found money," and believe that they will generate huge profits in exchange for leasing their land to the gas company. The GOOD NEWS is, there is money to be made by leasing your property to a gas company. The BAD NEWS is that many landowners are making the mistake of signing a gas lease without putting enough thought into the issues involved, and without consulting with professionals before signing.
