A West Virginia Gift Deed is used when the owner of a property or parcel of real estate wishes to donate or gift the property to another person or party without the expectation of payment for the transfer. This type of property transfer will require specific language about the details of the deed, since any unclear language could result in the document being contested in court. The gift deed will require a full description of the property. If an official survey has been taken of the property, it will need to be signed by the surveyor and submitted to the county clerk (W. Va. Code 39-1-2c). All documentation, additional materials, and fees will then be recorded and submitted at the local county Clerk's Office.
