WVC 38 - 4 - 22
§38-4-22. Appraisal before sale.
If, before any such sale is made, the judgment debtor, his
agent or attorney, or in their absence, his or her spouse, so
desires, the property to be sold shall be appraised by separate
items by two disinterested householders of the district in which
the levy is made, or where the debtor resides, if he resides in
the county, one to be selected by the judgment debtor, his agent
or attorney, or, in their absence, his or her spouse, and the
other by the judgment creditor, his agent or attorney, or in
their absence, by the officer in whose hands the execution, order
of sale or other process is, who, after being duly sworn for the
purpose, shall appraise, at its fair cash value, each item of
property to be sold, reduce their appraisement to writing, sign
the same and deliver it to the officer whose duty it is to make
the sale. If they do not agree as to the value of any item of
property to be sold, such officer shall, on his official oath,
act as umpire in the case and his decision and that of one of
such appraisers shall determine the value of such items. Such
appraisement shall be returned by the officer with his execution,
order of sale or other process.
