In Ireland, contracts for the sale of land don’t have to be in any particular form. If one party signs written evidence of the agreed terms, the other party can use that to enforce the contract. Crucially, even where one party doesn’t intend the correspondence to be binding, it can still result in a binding contract. In exceptional circumstances (for example, where someone has acted to their detriment based on another’s representation) written evidence of the agreed terms, may not even be required.
