Gas Leases in PA Filed Illegally (VIDEO)WENY-TV



Gas Leases in PA Filed Illegally (VIDEO)WENY-TV

WELLSBORO -- A WENY-TV News investigation shows that there could be a large number of natural gas leases in Pennsylvania that were filed illegally.

The legality of the leases is linked to the process taken by natural gas companies when the leases are signed.

When a landowner signs the lease, the landowner by law must appear before a notary, who is technically an appointed state official.

Shame on this Notary Public!! She knows, as does ALL Notaries, that it is illegal to notarize signatures unless the person appears in front of her! She should lose her bond. If the lease company asked her to notarize signatures for them, it was up to HER to say NO!!! Gives a bad name to all of us who take our oath seriously.

Go figure thats what Happens when you let a large business like the Oil/Gas company run the Government the way they do. Everything is ok when it comes to someone filling their pockets full of green.

Actually...most large companies that I have worked with or for usually have their own employees that have notary abilities. It is actually pretty easy to get a document notarized.

Makes no difference if a company has their own notary or not. If the lessor did not personally appear before the notary when the lease was "notarized", the document was illegally completed and filed.

Can the lease be null and void if this happened?

The people still signed the lease, didn't they? They should be bound by the terms of the contract.
