Here is a little cut and paste from somewhere:

Oral Lease

Theoretically, an oral lease is just as binding as a written lease. While oral leases may seem convenient at first, they are
usually vague and easily forgotten. If your landlord should forget, or choose to disregard, her/his assurances to you, it will
be your word against hers/his. For this reason, oral leases are generally not advisable. If you are unable to get a written
lease, protect yourself! Try to get the landlord at least to write down the amount of rent, security deposit and responsibility
for repairs. Even if you have an oral lease, you may still need to give written notice of your intent to terminate your tenancy.
See section on Termination of the Lease.
