The Pennsylvania “Statute of Frauds” governs the contracts enforced in the state and is set up to prevent fraudulent claims and perjury acts.
The Statute stipulates that oral or verbal contracts and contracts for sale of real state are valid contracts but non-enforceable by law. However, compensation for damages will be provided for losses arising from the breach of contracts that are entered in writing.
The aggrieved party is entitled to claim for all damages suffered by him for the non-performance of promises agreed upon by the other party.
