WVC 36 - 2 - 11 §36-2-11. Title of purchaser.
Where a sale, lease, mining lease or other conveyance is decreed under the provisions of this article, the title of the purchaser to such interest as was decreed to be conveyed to him shall be indefeasible by any party to the suit, or by any person who was virtually represented according to the provisions of section three of this article by any party to the suit, or by any person who was not in being at the time the suit was commenced. And if a sale, lease, mining lease or other conveyance made under such a decree shall be confirmed, although such decree be afterwards reversed or set aside, the title of the purchaser or lessee shall not be affected thereby; but all subsequent orders and decrees shall affect only the proceeds of sale, or the reversion subject to such lease, or mining lease, together with the proceeds, rents and royalties of the lease or mining lease. All sales, leases and mining leases shall be free and acquit of all liens and encumbrances created since the twenty-second day of May, nineteen hundred and eleven, and inchoate dower, held by any party to the suit; but such liens and encumbrances, and consummate dower, when it shall vest, shall attach to the estate or interest of any person in the proceeds of sale, or in the reversion subject to any such lease or mining lease, or other conveyance, together with the proceeds, rents and royalties accruing from such lease or mining lease, to the same extent that such liens, encumbrances and dower attached or would have attached to his estate or interest in the property if no sale, lease or mining lease had been made. And after the confirmation of any such sale, lease or mining lease, the court, with or without an order of reference, may ascertain and fix the priority of any such liens and encumbrances, and assign consummate dower when the same shall vest.
