Highlight

A long-term lease with an option to purchase real property ordinarily requires a signed written agreement.
Promissory estoppel provides for the enforceability of an otherwise void or legally unenforceable agreement when one of the parties has acted to his or her detriment because of a representation or promise made by the other party as to future events.
Before promissory estoppel may be invoked to enforce an agreement or to award damages, the terms of the promise must be clear, definite, and unambiguous.
