Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
In order to insure that the operator will release the liens, before any payment is made you need to draft a written contractual agreement that states in consideration for you making the payment agreed upon between you and the operator, they agree that they will sign over all documents required to complete the transfer. In the agreement, it needs to state that their failure to do so and breaching the contract
would be grounds for you to seek liquidated damages equal to double the amount of money due plus attorney's fees if you have to pursue the matter for breach of contract
Once you have the signed contract and make payment, if they refuse to comply, you then have to sue them for breach to seek your damages.
