West Virginia is well known for its rolling hills and mountains and is historically renowned for coal mining, logging industries as well as its labor and political history. However, before the state's name was even thought of, archeologists claim that there were various prehistoric mound-building cultures were actively developing settlements and a culture starting as late as 100 BC here. The contemporary Native American tribes reported in the area when the Europeans first arrived included the Cherokee, Shawnee, Tutelo, and Saponi tribes. It is thought that the Iroquois tribe didn’t move into the area until after the Europeans started their occupation of the area.
The first Europeans to explore this area were sent by the Royal Governor of the colony of Virginia, William Berkeley, in 1661. The ownership rights of part of the state were initially granted to a group of men by King Charles II of England. The part now known as West Virginia was contested by many colonizers with Virginia and Pennsylvania both claiming territorial rights. Land companies like Vandalia, Ohio and Indiana companies later claimed the area, but they could not legitimize their claims. Therefore, up until the Civil War, the area remained part of the state of Virginia.
However, with the coming of the Civil War, the western and eastern portions of the original Virginia were fundamentally torn philosophically over such issues as slavery. The act of Virginia succeeding from the union prompted a few Unionist counties in the west to want to break away from the new Confederate state and rejoin the North. They took a vote at the Wheeling Conventions and eventually elected to separate themselves from Virginia and called themselves ‘The Restored Government of Virginia.' After successfully gaining their independence, they abolished slavery and on June 20, 1863, the new state was renamed West Virginia and was officially admitted as the 35th state to join the United States of America.

Its location in the Appalachian Mountain Range granted it the nickname ‘Mountain State’. The state’s motto is ‘Montani Semper Liberi’, which translates to ‘Mountaineers are always free’.
This state is located in the southern part of the USA, on the Appalachian Mountain Range and it shares its borders with the states of Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland. W.Va. is famous for its mountain ranges and the coal mines. Logging and mining of coal have historically been major contributors to the economy of the region. Coal was a key reason behind the population outburst in the years following its declaration as a state.
Its landscape or soil topography is formed mainly from the dissolved soluble rocks such as gypsum, dolomite, and limestone and is also characterized by numerous underground drainage systems with caves and sinkholes. These conditions made this region among the densest karstic areas in the globe, which make it suitable for scientific research and recreational caving.

When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. Since this state used to be part of the original 13 colonies, it primarily follows the old English surveying method of using Metes and Bounds.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this is primarily a title theory state. This simply means that the raw title of the property will remain in a trust until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Deed of Trust. Another less conventional method here is for the bank to use a Mortgage instead.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender can typically avoid having to go through the court system. They do this by merely starting a non-judicial foreclosure which typically only takes about 90 days to complete. However, when necessary, the lender may need to instead go to court and start a more lengthy and costly judicial foreclosure. The laws that pertain to the W. Va. foreclosure process are mostly found in the WV Code Chapter 38, Article 1 §38-1 through §38-16-506, §38-1-1a and Chapter 59.
However, if you are a landlord that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the statutes of Chapter 37, sections 6-1 to 6-30 instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the WV Real Estate Commission (WVREC), which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the West Virginia Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, have at least a GED, complete at least 90 hours of their approved real estate courses, successfully pass the written state exam, and pay the various required licensing fees.
