1935_Circa_Joe_HARGER_Estate_Handwritten_Notes.pdf
The HARGER Trust had a lot of houses around Southport which Joe HARGER administered. A lot of them became quite derelict and there was one where one of the tenants burnt the stairs. A lot of the houses were bombed during the 2nd WW for which the Corporation paid only £15- as compensation. The HARGER family lost a lot of money during that time. Joe's eyesight became very poor as he became elderly. FW DELVES used to travel to Southport to help with the administration of the estate but he found Joe difficult to deal with.

1879_Stautory_Declaration_Joseph HARGER_Transcript.pdf

Sarah Lister writes 25th Feb 2021:
This week I did a Zoom talk for a group of genealogists in Harrogate. We were talking about solving problems from a variety of sources so I mentioned the statutory declaration.
One of the participants had spent her whole career as a solicitor specialising in property work and she explained this was almost routine for the sale of a property:
On the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer in late 1878, Robert SLINGER entered into a contract to buy the property, but would not complete his purchase until a completion date of probably 4 to 6 weeks later. After the auction the seller’s solicitor would have sent Robert’s solicitor an abstract of title giving details of the title of the land, so as to show that the seller had a good and marketable title. It is possible that there was a flaw in the title which Robert's solicitor required to be removed by means of the statutory declaration which followed in February 1879. So, in conclusion, the statutory declaration was needed to prove that the sellers were entitled to the land and therefore could sell it. It is no more than a coincidence that Robert SLINGER was William HARGER’s son in law.
