WVC 44 - 1 - 6 §44-1-6. Bond and oath; termination of grant in certain cases.
At the time of the grant of administration upon the estate of any intestate, the person to whom it is granted shall, in the court or before the clerk granting it, give bond and take an oath that the deceased has left no will so far as he knows, and that he will faithfully perform the duties of his office to the best of his judgment. If a will of the deceased be afterwards admitted to record, or if, after administration is granted to a creditor or other person than a distributee, any distributee who shall not have before refused shall apply for administration, there may be a grant of probate or administration, after reasonable notice to such creditor or other person theretofore appointed, in like manner as if the former grant had not been made, and such former grant shall thereupon cease.
