Types of Contract Breaches

In Oklahoma, an oral contract is generally enforceable, so long as it satisfies the many other contract requirements. However, some contracts MUST be in writing pursuant to The Statute of Frauds, such as:

  • An agreement that, by its terms, cannot possibly be performed within a year from the making thereof;

  • Surety - A special promise to answer for the debt, default or miscarriage of another (except in the cases provided for in the article on guaranty);

  • An agreement made upon consideration of marriage, other than a mutual promise to marry; and

  • An agreement for the leasing for a longer period than one (1) year, or for the sale of real property, or of an interest therein; and such agreement, if made by an agent or a broker of the party sought to be charged, is invalid, unless the authority of the agent or the broker be in writing, subscribed by the party sought to be charged.
