The scope of this writing is to examine the status of the doctrine of worthier title in relation to inter vivos conveyances of real and personal property in West Virginia. This, it is believed, should be of importance both to the general practitioner engaged in frequent conveyances of real property and in certification of titles, and also to the estate planner who chooses the trust deed as a vehicle of partial or complete disposition of a client's possessions.
