Jane is intending to emigrate to New Zealand and therefore tells Louise: “You can have it for £14,500 provided you can arrange for its removal by this Friday”. Louise says that she will think about it.

2 - On Thursday Louise e-mails Jane at work and formally accepts the offer of sale at £14.500 but adds: “I suppose there is no chance of moving it on the Saturday instead?” Jane only reads the e-mail after leaving a recorded message on Louise’s answering machine in which she withdraws her offer.

3 - On Wednesday Louise, is told by a member of the local tennis club that Jane’s application to emigrate to New Zealand has been refused. Louise immediately sends a fax to Jane’s place of work in which she accepts Jane’s offer.
