Land, do you own it all?
19 Mar 07
When you 'own' land it depends. The ownership rights are broken up into 'surface' rights and 'sub-surface' rights. The owner of the sub-surface rights depend on the legal rights granted by the state since ownership of land is regulated by the government. By the way, if you can lose your property for 'failure to pay taxes' then you do not own the land.
