California’s Statute of Frauds

The statute of frauds is a collective term describing the various statutory provisions which render unenforceable certain types of contracts unless they are evidenced by a writing. The statute of frauds does not mean that oral agreements within the scope of the statute of frauds cannot be made and performed, or that they are illegal.  It merely means that enforcement may be unavailable if one of the parties refuses to fulfill their obligations.
