No not in any state I'm aware of. You may be thinking
of some type of quasi contract, however, real estate
contracts must almost always be in writing.
There may be cases (very limited) where estoppel would
apply even to a quasi contract for real estate.
For example if there was a clear promise made that if a
person (care giver) provides a certain type of care for
another person that person will in turn leave them their
house of other valuable consideration. That is a tough
case to win for the care giver unless it's in writing.
