Highlight

To satisfy the statute of frauds, a writing must contain all of the essential or material terms and conditions of the contract, and parole evidence may not be used to supply a missing essential term of the agreement.
Part performance of an agreement or contract for the leasing of property for longer than a one-year may bar the assertion of the statute of frauds.
To succeed on a claim of part performance, a party must first prove the circumstances of the case meet the general prerequisites to equitable relief and the party must show that the alleged part performance is consistent only with the existence of the alleged oral contract.
