WVC 36 - 4 - 6
§36-4-6. Freedom from encumbrances.
A covenant, by any grantor in a deed, containing the words
"free from all encumbrances," or a covenant of like import, shall
have the same effect as if the grantor had covenanted for
himself, his heirs and personal representatives, that the
premises are freely and absolutely acquitted, exonerated and
forever discharged, and the grantee, his heirs and assigns, will
be saved harmless and indemnified of, from and against any and
every charge and encumbrance whatever.
