Qualified Acceptance

In contract law, an assent to an offer that is either conditional or partial and alters the offer by changing the time, amount, mode, or place of payment.

In order for a contract to be valid, an acceptance of an offer must not be subject to any conditions; therefore, a qualified acceptance is tantamount to a counteroffer.
