This is not always the preferred way to start a contractual relationship with another party as it may be extremely difficult to prove an oral contract, but they are viewed as legally enforceable. As with all contracts including oral contracts, there has to be an offer, acceptance and consideration for the contract to be valid. Missing one of these elements may make a contract vulnerable to attack if a party wants to get out of the contract.
