My property here in California has an exclusion for mineral rights. I
own the property but NOT the mineral rights. Technically, someone
could tunnel beneath me, and extract any minerals until my home fell
into a sinkhole. They can't come on the property though. And then
there are things like setbacks. It's my property but... I can't plant
a tree within X number of feet from the street because the city/county
and utilities companies have rights to that zone. There are so many of
those limitations it's a question of what I can do or not do. I even
have to go to the utilities to get permission to dig down more than a
foot or maybe 18" so I don't hit a power, gas, water, sewer, or
whatever line. But they can enter anytime to work on their stuff. And
nowwwwww, the new "eminent domain" law is in place. Before they could
take my place for a highway or similar. Now they can take it and give
it to a business. There's a guy in Texas, along with his neighbors who
are losing theirs for a new stadium.
It pays to read the deed and title, as well as keep a close eye on any
new laws and ordinances which get passed.
