Right to Buy and Right to Acquire schemes

As a tenant you may be able to purchase the property you rent from us using the Right to Buy or Right to Acquire schemes. 

Your tenancy start date (which could include earlier tenancies with Watford Community Housing or another housing association), will decide which scheme you fall under, if any. house pound

Only secure tenants who were transferred from Watford Borough Council to the Watford Community Housing on 10th September 2007 qualify for the Right to Buy scheme.  If your tenancy began after 10th September 2007, you do not qualify, but may have the Right to Acquire.
