Re: Sale of Durable Leases

In the Saratoga County Clerk's records, Book #5 of "Miscellaneous Records" contains a transcription of a power of attorney dated 6 September 1870 in which Alida V. K. Boyd of Philadelphia PA, with Fannie K. Norton and Catherine M. Knickerbocker of the City of New York appointed Richard McMichael and John R. Putnam of Saratoga Springs as their attorneys to sell their right, title and interest in and to a number of durable leases. The following table recapitulates the data recorded in the schedule of leases which was appended to this power of attorney. The lot numbers of the lots which were leased are copied as they appear in the list of leases, and may not be completely accurate.

Such a sale of a bundle of durable leases was infrequently documented in Saratoga County land records, but is certaily not unique. Investors and speculators had occasion at various times and for varying reasons to sell or assign the leases from which they received or were at least supposed to receive the rent. These sales might provide funds for other investments or to settle estates, and would relieve the lessor from having to rely on uncertain or inadequate future income from rents which were dependent on the occupants' ability to pay.
