West Virginia is one of the states in the US that has two ownership titles, those being SURFACE RIGHTS and MINERAL RIGHTS. A title search for mineral rights ownership has not been conducted. The property is being taxed as SURFACE ownership.  All rights the owner has will convey with the property. A mineral title search could be conducted by a title attorney at the same time when the surface title search is being conducted.


The deeds for the properties contain metes and bounds descriptions from boundary surveys that were performed in the 1990s and later.  The properties are being sold by the boundary and not by the acre.
