    Are you referring to an auditor’s “unqualified opinion” on the company’s accounts?

    Oh yes, thanks!

    To me, I take the term ‘unqualified agreement’ to indicate that a person accepts the offer without any reservations. In other words, they are whole heartedly agreeing to the terms set out in the offer.

    Further to the earlier answer unqualified agreement to an offer is effectively the only valid kind of acceptance of an offer legally under Scottish and English law. Attempting to add conditions to the acceptance of an offer would be a counter offer ,legally speaking, and would have the effect of rendering the offer null and void and incapable of acceptance.
