Without written signatures, it's implied and it doesn't hold water in NC or SC.

Daniel,

I know you are asked to ask us these questions.  However, the best value for you to learn real estate would be to look it up either on Google or in your book.  Then you will remember the answer.  Research helps you retain, being given the answer does not.  A

  A lease can be oral. 

  A contract for the sale and purchase must be in writing to be enforceable.

I'm in New York City, I get in a cab and tell the driver to take me to Carnegie Hall.  It is implied he will take me there, and that once we arrive I will pay him.

Great question.  Daniel are you studying to be a Lawyer?  I remember learning a long time ago that a verbal contract was worth the paper it was written on! So, I only deal in written contracts/agreements. I don't know what would be a good example of an "implied contract" is but it would be interesting to know.

Implied is not in writing.  Seller says ... I want you to list my home.  You do not have a signed listing agreement.  That is implied and means nothing. Signatures carry a lot of weight in contracts!

A converstion at lunch with a prospect where you give them advice, it implies you are their agent and such implication has been found to be valid in Georgia courts.

If it is not in writing, it is not part of the contract. Differences of opinion, arguments, shouting fights and lawsuits can be the results of stuff that is "implied."

Really no such thing as an implied "contract"... if it's not in writing and not signed it doesn't exist as far as the law is concerned.

When an imp lied about the terms of a contract.

Most imps are mischievous and may lie as a prank. 

When an imp lies, make sure you check all terms and conditions of the contract.
