Mutual Agreement Offer
E. Restatement 40 – Refusal or counter-offer by courier not valid until rec`d. (see mailbox rule) Richard Austen-Baker, a researcher in English law, suggested that the continuation of the concept at present should be based on a confusion of the concept with the concept of consensus ad idem (« Agreement on the same thing », which is an undisputed requirement of synallagatic contraction, and that this confusion may be the result of the recent lack of knowledge of Latin.  i. Must be notified before the offer is accepted The mailbox rule is used to help a court decide which act is valid if the notification of acceptance and revocation is not immediate.  Under the mailbox rule, the bidder`s acceptance of an offer is valid as soon as it is sent.  Once a bidder accepts the offer, the bidder cannot revoke the offer. If, on the other hand, a bidder wishes to revoke the offer, this revocation only applies if the bidder receives it. Similarly, the rejection by the bidder only applies when the supplier obtains it. The rule is generally referred to as « acceptance in the event of mailing and refusing or revocation after receipt. » An offer can only form the basis of a binding contract if it contains the essential terms of the contract. As a minimum requirement for the sale of goods contracts, a valid offer must include at least 4 conditions: delivery date, price, payment terms that include the payment date and detailed description of the item offered, including a fair description of the condition or type of service.
If the minimum requirements are not met, an offer to purchase is not considered by the courts as a legal offer, but as an advertisement. Under Dutch law, in most cases, a complaint is more an invitation to make an offer than an offer.   ID. See also Extreme Mach. Fabricating, Inc., 49 N.E.3d to 330 (« A] offer of price » may be considered an offer for the formation of a binding contract if there are sufficient details and if it results from the terms of the offer that all that is necessary to mature the offer into a contract is the agreement of the beneficiary. (internal quotes are omitted). An invitation to treatment is not an offer, but an indication of a person`s willingness to negotiate a contract. It`s a pre-offer communication. In the UK, Harvey v. Facey is an indication to the owner of the property that he or she might, for example, be interested in a sale at a specified price, was considered an invitation to treatment. Similarly, in the English case Gibson v.
Manchester City Council, the words « may be ready to sell » were considered a price notice and therefore not a separate offer, although in another case involving the same policy change (Manchester City Council experienced a political change and stopped the sale of council houses to their tenants) Storer v. Manchester City Council «  the Tribunal found that an agreement had been the signing and restitution of the sale contract by the tenant, because the language of the agreement was sufficiently explicit and the signing on behalf of the Council was a mere formality to be fulfilled. Invitation declarations serve only to collect offers from individuals and not to result in an immediate binding obligation. Courts tend to be consistent in determining invitations to process proposed and accepted invitations in joint transactions. The display of goods for sale, whether in a display case or on the shelves of a self-service store, is generally treated as an invitation to processing and not as an offer.   A simple request for information on supply conditions is not a counter-offer and does not affect supply.  It may be possible to establish a request in such a way that it is added to the contractual terms while maintaining the initial offer.
