Home builders keep mineral rights to homes they sell

fracking-protest

When you buy a new house, make sure the builder doesn’t retain the mineral rights, otherwise you might get fracked. In some states, builders do not have to disclose this and if they do, it may be buried deep within the contract.

Homeowners, once they find out they don’t own the earth under their feet, are typically not pleased. Many worry about the potential health and environmental effects of fracking.
