Commercial And Residential Real Estate Transactions In Texas
The North Texas area is growing rapidly. Denton County in particular is experiencing tremendous commercial and real estate development. With the surge of interest in extracting oil and gas from the Barnett Shale in Denton and the surrounding counties, questions concerning oil and gas leases and mineral interests have become more and more common.
