There are 5 family members. each has different amounts of land which was leased to the landman/company. the amounts of land for the 5 landowners are .332,.332,.481,.510,1.101 (acres).
The family wants the bonus checks and royalty pay distributed evenly between all 5. What is the best financial move to make? Trust, seperate bank account? Help please.

The bonus check is k and the royalty rate is 25%

    If the family wants it evenly split then that is what should happen even if it is not a fair distribution. Separate checks per landowner delivered as per their personal choice.
