WVC 36 - 1 - 8
§36-1-8. Conveyance by attorney in fact.
If, in a deed of land, or a conveyance by writing of
personal property, made by one as attorney in fact for another,
the words of conveyance or the signature be in the name of the
attorney, it shall be as much the principal's deed or conveyance
as if the words of conveyance or the signature were in the name
of the principal by the attorney, if it be manifest on the face
of the instrument that it should be construed to be that of the
principal to give effect to its intent.
