    OK. Here's a North Carolina statute that's actually entitled Statute of Frauds. It's part of the Uniform Commercial Code (Section 25-2-201), addresses the sale of goods, and (as you can see) has nothing to do with the renting or leasing of real estate:

    "25-2-201. Formal requirements; statute of frauds.
    (1) Except as otherwise provided in this section a contract for the sale of goods for the price of five hundred dollars ($500.00) or more is not enforceable by way of action or defense unless there is some writing sufficient to indicate that a contract for sale has been made between the parties and signed by the party against whom enforcement is sought or by his authorized agent or broker. A writing is not insufficient because it omits or incorrectly states a term agreed upon but the contract is not enforceable under this paragraph beyond the quantity
    of goods shown in such writing.
    (2) Between merchants if within a reasonable time a writing in confirmation of the contract and sufficient against the sender is received and the party receiving it has reason to know its contents, it satisfies the requirements of subsection (1) against such party unless written notice of objection to its contents is given within ten days after it is received.
    (3) A contract which does not satisfy the requirements of subsection (1) but which is valid in other respects is enforceable
    (a) if the goods are to be specially manufactured for the buyer and are not suitable for sale to others in the ordinary course of the seller's business and the seller, before notice of repudiation is received and under circumstances which reasonably indicate that the goods are for the buyer, has made either a substantial beginning of their manufacture or commitments for their procurement; or
    (b) if the party against whom enforcement is sought admits in his pleading, testimony or otherwise in court that a contract for sale was made, but the contract is not enforceable under this provision beyond the quantity of goods admitted; or
    (c) with respect to goods for which payment has been made and accepted or which have been received and accepted."

    Anything else you'd like me to look up for you? I'd be happy to oblige.

    No thanks, because all I did was suggest you research it, mate.
    By the way, never mind, I'll just censor myself.
    I'm not your boss, or master.
    You're a free human being, as far as I know.
