Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Texas

Eight heirs inherited un-equal shares of 2800 acres of undivided property in Texas. This property has been leased for hunting rights to another individual for the last 30 years. Due to the oil boom on the property one of the heirs has requested that we no longer lease the property for hunting. We no longer lease the property to another individual for hunting. The other seven heirs would like to hunt the property for themselves. The question is; can on heir stop another heir from hunting on the property?

Short answer...probably not, but it depends.

I know you wanted something more definitive, but the answer will turn on facts not presented.

This issue is significant enough that it is worth consulting a local attorney for advice.

Good Luck!
