Q.

How is the statute of frauds related to real estate?

A.

In Florida, the statute of frauds essentially means that a transaction involving land (real estate) needs to be in writing and signed by the party to be charged. Even though the word “fraud” is within the term “statute of frauds”, we’re not talking about the typical understanding of the word “fraud”. Again, it essentially means: Put it in writing and get it signed by the party to be charged.
