     § 3385.  Limitation upon claims.
        All claims against the decedent, subject only to the
     provisions of section 3381 (relating to liens and charges
     existing at death not impaired) and section 3382 (relating to
     judgments which are liens at death), shall become unenforceable
     after one year from the decedent's death against a bona fide
     grantee of, or holder of a lien on, real property of the
     decedent who has acquired his interest for value from or through
     those entitled to the property by will or by intestacy, either:
            (1)  more than one year after the death of the decedent
        and when no letters issued in the Commonwealth upon the
        decedent's estate were in effect; or
            (2)  within such year if no letters upon the decedent's
        estate have been issued in the Commonwealth during that year.
     Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit the right of
     a personal representative subsequently appointed to recover from
     the heir or devisee the value of property so sold or encumbered.
