West Virginia Code
CHAPTER 36A. CONDOMINIUMS AND UNIT PROPERTY.
ARTICLE 5. RECORDING.
All instruments relating to the property or any unit, including the instruments provided for in this chapter, shall be entitled to be recorded, provided that they are acknowledged or proved in the manner provided by law.
No declaration, declaration plan or code of regulations, or any amendments thereto, shall be effective until the same have been duly recorded.
The clerk shall record declarations, deeds of units, codes of regulations, and revocations in the same records as are maintained for the recording of deeds of real property. Mortgages relating to units shall be recorded in the same records as are maintained by the clerk for the recording of real estate mortgages. Declaration plans, and any and all amendments thereto, shall be recorded in the same records as are maintained for the recording of subdivision plans.
The clerk shall index each declaration against the maker thereof as the grantor and the name by which the property is identified therein as the grantee. The clerk shall index each declaration plan and code of regulations and any revocation in the name by which the property is identified therein in both the grantor index and the grantee index. The clerk shall index each unit deed and mortgage and lease covering a unit in the same manner as like instruments are indexed.
The clerk shall be entitled to charge the same fees for recording instruments which are recordable under this chapter as the clerk is entitled to charge for like services with respect to the recording of various similar instruments under the general law.
