I have provided all required documentation to transfer an interest, when should I expect to receive royalty payments?

Once all required documentation is received, division orders will be sent within 30 days. Once the division orders are signed and returned, royalty payments will be issued in the following revenue cycle.

Royalty Payments

When should I expect my royalty payment?

Revenue is processed once a month and payments are issued between the 25th and 30th of each month.

There is not a set date when payments are made. Please plan accordingly, between the 25th and 30th of each month.

What if I did not receive a royalty payment?

Please contact Owner Relations. The most common reason is because your account has not exceeded the $50.00 minimum required to cut a check.

What do I do if I think my check was lost in the mail?

Checks are not considered lost until the 15th of each month. Please contact us after the 15th and we will be happy to void and re-issue payment in the following revenue cycle.

What should I do if my check is older than 90 days?

Any check older than 90 days should be marked void and sent back to Hawkwood. Once it is received, it will be voided and re-issued in the next revenue cycle.

Returned checks will be voided and re-issued within 45 days of being received.

Direct Deposit/ACH

How can I sign up for direct deposit?

Can multiple owner numbers be used for the same banking account?

Yes, please be sure to specify which owner numbers you would like to be tied to the bank account you provide.

What if I have questions about my 1099 or property tax statements?
