WVC 36 - 3 - 4
§36-3-4. Distinctions between various kinds of deeds abolished.
All distinctions in legal effect between deeds of grant,
deeds of bargain and sale, deeds of lease and release, and deeds
of covenant to stand seized, are hereby abolished. Any
instrument which shows on its face a present intent to pass the
title to, or any interest, present or future, in real property,
shall, if properly executed and delivered, be given effect
according to its manifest intent. No instrument purporting to
convey land, or any interest therein, shall fail of effect merely
for lack of conformity with the language of sections five, six,
seven, eight or nine of this article.
