Your tenancy

Buying your home from us

If you’re already a tenant with us, you may be able to purchase your home at a discounted rate under the Right To Buy or Right To Acquire schemes.


Right To Buy is available to most people who were Watford Borough Council tenants, before the homes were transferred to Watford Community Housing. This will apply to you if your tenancy began before 10th September 2007.

If you became a Watford Community Housing tenant more recently, you may instead qualify for the Right To Acquire as long as you have been a secure tenant for more than three years.

How to apply for the Right to Buy
If you’d like to apply to buy your home under the Right to Buy scheme, please complete both forms (below) in full. Please note that as of 17th February 2020, these are the only forms that will be accepted.

Both forms can be accessed using this link. You must complete both forms and return them together.
