Contract disputes in Massachusetts are controlled by a six-year statute of limitations. Beyond the terms of any written or oral contract is an implied covenant that each party will act fairly and in good faith. Oftentimes, a breach of this covenant of good faith and fair dealings forms the basis of a cause of action in addition to a simple breach. The statute of frauds requires that contracts be in writing that cannot be performed in one year, for the sale of land and to answer for the debt, default or misdoings of another. Any action to enforce such obligations based in contract where such agreements are not in writing are barred by law.
