559.09 REMOVAL OF BUILDING ERECTED IN GOOD FAITH.

When any person, in good faith and under color of title, and with good reason to believe that the legal title to land is vested in the person, has erected any building or other structure thereon, when the legal and equitable title thereto was vested in another, such person may remove the same, doing no unnecessary damage, and in so doing shall be liable only for the actual damage to the land. Such removal shall be made within 60 days after the determination adversely to that person of any action or proceeding respecting the title, or within 60 days after notice from the holder of the legal title to remove the same; provided, if, within 60 days after receiving such notice, such person brings action to try such title, that person may make such removal within 60 days after the determination thereof.
