The Statute of Frauds is a law that requires certain types of contracts to be in writing. The most prominent contract that must be in writing is a contract for the purchase of real estate, or any interest in real estate. Other types of contracts that must be in writing in Pennsylvania are those for the sale of goods for the price of $500 or more, a contract for the sale of personal property for the price of $5,000 or more, and a contract for the lease goods of $1,000 or more. If any of these types of contracts are not in writing, they may be found to be invalid.
