I realise this is similar to existing questions, but it's got a slight twist to it (more around the legalities of the contract vs. accepting via email)...
I've received a job offer for Company A, but have a final interview at Company B this Friday. Company B's recruiter is aware of my situation (i.e. I received the contract for Company A yesterday) and as such, Company B have rushed through my final round for Friday.
TBH, Company B sounds like a much better fit and more interesting than Company A (plus considerably more money).
My question is - I have not signed any contracts with Company A yet, and am trying to delay this for a few days; if I were to accept the job via email (i.e. confirming in an email that "Yes, I confirm I accept this offer. I will sign and post the contract to you ASAP") and then wish to renege on it (i.e. because I have a contract from Company B), am I legally bound to Company A even though no contract has been signed....?
I'm in the UK if that helps.
