How do you know if land is subject to the Relinquishment Act?
Look for language such as "which was acquired by patent and sale from the State of TX"
What limits does the Relinquishment Act place on the owner of land?
Owner does not own the oil and gas in the mineral estate. Owner can act as the agent of the state and lease the land, sharing the lease benefits equally with the state, but may not "sell" the mineral estate.
What can the state of TX do against a mortgagee trying to foreclose against the land?
The State may intervene and challenge the deed of trust lien. The bank may be able to foreclose against landowner's benefits under the lease, but not against the underlying mineral estate.
What is the formula for PPQ?
PPQ = production revenues from the lease MINUS the landowner's royalty MINUS operating costs
July 2005 - Mortgagor sends mortgagee a deed in lieu of forclosure. What is the effect of a deed in lieu upon morgagee's right to foreclose?

3) the use of the servient property was necessary to the use and enjoyment of the dominant estate
