Sullivan v. Gilson, 2019 Mass App. Unpub. LEXIS 235, 2019 WL 1467205 (Mass. App. Ct. 2019), the court held that the oral promise to convey title to the property to the person who paid for it is enforceable as a resulting trust even though it is not enforceable under the statute of frauds. The resulting trust doctrine is effectively an exception to the requirement that promises to convey land must be in writing.
