Contracts need not be in writing

A successful claim can still be made if there is sufficient evidence, oral or in the nature of the conduct, to support it.

IN the context of various dealings, rights and obligations are understandably created. Yet, there is a widespread perception that a person cannot enforce rights which are believed to have been acquired because there is no written document and therefore a contract. As such, people sometimes refrain from taking any further action and let matters be.
