5303.17 Action by occupying claimant after election.

When an application is made for the value of improvements to land, the occupying claimant or his heirs shall not be evicted from the possession of such land except as provided in sections 5303.15 and 5303.16 of the Revised Code. When an election has been made by the successful claimant, his heirs, or their guardians, to surrender the land, if the occupying claimant or his heirs, within the time allowed, pay into court its value, without improvements, thereafter they may bring suit in the court which gave judgment of eviction, and obtain judgment for the title to the land, if it was not previously conveyed to such occupant.
