WVC 44 - 9 - 13
§44-9-13. Final accounting of personal representative; effect of
his acts; title of purchasers and distributees.
The circuit court shall, when the prior proceedings have
been vacated as provided in the preceding section, require a
final settlement of the personal representative, and direct the
transfer of all assets in the hands of such personal
representative, and, if any property or proceeds thereof have
been distributed, the retransfer or refunding thereof to the
supposed decedent, or his duly authorized agent, attorney or
representative. All acts of such personal representative while
his letters were in force, and the title of bona fide purchasers
to property under sales made by him, shall remain as valid as if
such letters were unrevoked. But nothing in this section shall
validate the title of any person to any money or property
received as surviving wife or husband, next of kin, heir, legatee
or devisee of such supposed decedent, but the same may be
recovered from such person in like manner as if there had been no
proceedings under the provisions of this article.
