WVC 38 - 3 - 16 §38-3-16. Order of liability of real estate.
Where the real estate liable to the lien of a judgment is more than sufficient to satisfy the same, and it, or any part of it, has been aliened, as between the alienees, that which was aliened last shall, in equity, be first liable, and so on with other successive alienations until the whole judgment is satisfied, except that where any prior alienee has not recorded his deed or conveyance another parcel of the judgment debtor's land, subsequently aliened to a purchaser for value and without notice of the prior alienation, shall be considered as having been aliened prior to the aforesaid unrecorded alienation. But any part of such real estate retained by the debtor himself shall be first liable to the satisfaction of the judgment.
