Whilst I can not write the answer for you, that would be unethical - I can point you in the right direction.


Making the assumption the offer has stated acceptance must be by post.


Postal rule means that if someone has made an offer as soon as you post a letter accepting it, it is deemed to be accepted, not when they receive it, but as soon as you post it.
