WVC 20 - 12 - 8
§20-12-8. Uniformity of application and construction.
This article shall be applied and construed to effectuate its
general purpose to make uniform the laws with respect to the
subject of this article among states enacting similar laws. Except
as expressly otherwise provided, nothing contained in this article
is intended to be construed to alter applicable established common
law. In a manner consistent with common law, the granting of a
conservation or preservation easement shall not subsequently
restrict the right of the fee owner to further grant any other
interest in real property to any person or entity when the grant
does not materially impair the prior conservation or preservation
easement. When a fee holder grants an interest beyond the
conservation or preservation easement, he shall notify the holder
of any conservation or preservation easement at least forty-five
days prior to the execution of any subsequent easement or any other
conveyance of an interest in land encompassed by the conservation
or preservation easement.
