WVC 37 - 6 - 9
§37-6-9. Recovery of rent by distress or action; evidence;
Rent of every kind may be recovered by distress or action. A
landlord may also, by action, recover a reasonable satisfaction
for the use and occupation of lands, and, on the trial of such
action, if any parol demise, or any agreement wherein a certain
rent was reserved, shall appear in evidence, the plaintiff shall
not for that reason be nonsuited, but may use the same as
evidence of the amount of his debt or damages. In any action for
rent, or for such use and occupation, interest shall be allowed
as on other contracts.
