Housing authority need not state the obvious that the offer is final

Omar v. Birmingham City Council

Court of Appeal 

“It was not necessary for a letter offering accommodation in discharge of a local housing authority’s duty under the Housing Act 1996 to a person with priority need who was not intentionally homeless to state in so many words that the letter was “a final offer for the purposes of section 193(7)” where it was clear that it was a final offer.”
