Accepted Answer

Hi Kareem,

You would need to discuss offer and acceptance generally and then move onto case law in relation to communication of acceptance by instantaneous methods. Consider the consequences of case decisions for the person accepting the offer and the person receiving (or deemed to receive) the acceptance in relation to instantaneous methods of comunication. Imagine, for example, a person sends acceptance of an offer by fax, but the recipient of the acceptance is out and does not read the fax for some time or the situation where the recipient`s fax machine does not print out the acceptance properly. Caselaw provides answers to these kinds of scenarios to provide some degree of certainty. However sometimes the results may appear unfair. The caselaw is also to some extent inconsistent.

This is just a rough and very brief outline and my initial thoughts only. If you wish to discuss things in further detail feel free to contact me.
