WVC 11A-3-17 §11A-3-17. Sale of subsequent tax liens.

Whenever any tax lien on any real estate has been sold at a tax sale to an individual purchaser, and the tax on such real estate for the year of the sale or for any subsequent year have become delinquent, the sheriff shall include the real estate in the delinquent lists of the proper year and shall sell any subsequent tax liens therefor on the whole or a part thereof for taxes as if the former sale had not occurred. The purchaser at the first sale may, however, prevent the second sale by paying the amount due, or he may redeem from the second sale. If the purchaser bought the lien upon only a part of the land at the first sale, he may prevent a second sale thereof by paying the proportionate part of the taxes assessed against the whole which are chargeable to the part purchased.
