2005 West Virginia Code - §37-6-16. — Distress or attachment when rent not payable in money.

§37-6-16. Distress or attachment when rent not payable in money.

Where goods are distrained or attached for rent reserved in a share of the crops, or in anything other than money, the claimant of the rent, having given the tenant ten days' notice, or if he be out of the county, having set up the notice in some conspicuous place on the premises, may apply to the court or justice to which the distress or attachment is returnable, to fix the value of such rent. Upon such application the court or justice having ascertained the value, either by its own judgment, or, if either party require it, by the verdict of a jury impaneled without the formality of pleading, shall order the goods distrained or attached, to be sold to pay the amount so ascertained.
