Watmos Community Homes was founded in 2003 after it took over management of 1,800 homes from Walsall Metropolitan Council, following a large-scale voluntary transfer.

The homes are managed by seven separate Tenant Management Organisations (TMOs) who administer the day-to-day activities of the homes. In 2012, Watmos acquired an additional three more TMOs in 2012, based in Lambeth, London.
