WVC 36 - 4 - 5
§36-4-5. Quiet possession.
A covenant by a grantor in a deed "that the grantee shall
have quiet possession of the said land," or a covenant of like
import, shall have as much effect as if he had covenanted that
the grantee, his heirs, personal representatives, and assigns,
might at any and all times thereafter, peaceably and quietly
enter upon, and have, hold and enjoy, the land conveyed by the
deed, or intended so to be, with all the buildings thereon, and
the privileges and appurtenances thereto belonging, and receive
and take the rents and profits thereof, to and for his and their
use and benefit, without any lawful eviction, interruption, suit,
claim or demand whatever.
