From 29 April 2016 new swimming pool laws state that all properties with a swimming pool or spa, that are sold must ensure the Contract for Sale includes;
* a valid swimming pool certificate of compliance, and a
* a certificate of registration.
What type of pools are included?
In ground, above-ground, indoor, portable and other types of pools and spa pools that are capable of being filled to a depth of 300mm or more of water.
Pool owners will be required to register their pools online on the NSW Government’s Swimming Pool Register and will need to make an application to either their local Council or an Accredited Certifier to carry out a compliance inspection of the pool barrier.
If you’re planning to sell your property during this time the good news is that Childs Property Inspections have accredited certifiers who can efficiently carry out a swimming pool barrier inspection and issue a Certificate of Compliance so long as the pool barrier meets all the safety requirements.
