Robyn S. Maguire, a partner in Nutter’s Litigation Department, commented on how a Land Court judge recently determined that a text message can satisfy the Statute of Frauds and seal a real estate transaction in the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly article “Agents’ text messages sealed real estate deal.” According to Robyn, the decision in St. John’s Holdings, LLC v. Two Electronics, LLC is a cautionary tale for people who want to take advantage of the convenience of doing business via email or text. She points out that people need to pay more attention to what they may consider less formal means of communication particularly if they have discussed all of the material terms of a deal previously.
