Both the nephew and aunt agree with the terms of the contract, without putting pressure on each other and with the intention of fulfilling their obligations. When it comes to selling real estate, there may be situations with multiple offers and multiple parties where there is pressure from both sides to reach an agreement quickly. However, since an oral contract in real estate is never valid or legally binding, a seller of real estate can orally accept a sale without legal consequences.

Warren NO. CA2003-10-099, 2004-Ohio-2814, ¶ 13. Whether you`re selling or selling an item, accepting a job, or letting yourself work on your home, you`ll likely be asked to sign a contract. Contracts are a way for both parties to agree on terms or services and protect themselves legally. But what about an oral contract? Will Ohio law protect you if you have agreed orally on something and the other party does not abides by your agreement? If a party fails to comply with its obligations, the injured party may be obliged to turn to the legal system to understand the agreement. However, in order for the courts to enforce a contract, certain legal formalities are required. Under Ohio law, one of the most important conditions for the applicability of a contact for the sale of goods is that it follows the model according to the Uniform Commercial Code Statute of Frauds. An oral contract is applicable in many situations as long as the agreement is demonstrable, meets all the conditions of the contract and does not violate the laws prohibiting oral agreements..
