Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Joe,Thank you for your follow-up. There is nothing illegal about sending a document with such a quick turnaround. However there is likewise nothing they can do if you take more time. As this is a very serious decision and one that may require attorney evaluation, state in writing that their short offer period is unreasonable, and if they do not grant you reasonable time (3 business days) to review with counsel, you will consider they behavior to be in 'bad faith'. Again, it is not illegal as to what they are doing, but I must be honest and state that their behavior appears ot be highly suspicious as it is based on coercing a response from you before you may have had time to conduct research.Good luck.
