Once it's gone through attorney approval, it's a legitimate contract subject to whatever contingencies it contains. An offer can still be presented, unless the seller asks that no more offers be taken, but It will be considered a backup offer. I've had sellers who just didn't feel right looking at another offer when they'd already signed a contract with a buyer. Unless they've asked to not see them, I always give the seller any written offer I receive.

It can, however it may be considered a back up offer, only entertained if and when the current deal should fall apart...

An offer may be presented at any time. If a prior offer has been accepted it can be entertained as a back up offer.

An offer could be presented any time. Whether the seller can accept it is another thing. If the seller is under contract, they can hold it as a back up. If they are still negotiating and your offer is better they could choose your offer if it is better. Simply ask the listing agent pointed questions such as has an offer been accepted and signed by the seller? Is the seller accepting any additional offers? and is there any chance the offer that was accepted will fall out of escrow due to any contingincies?

Unless the seller has indicated they don't wish to hear further offers then an offer can be presented at any time
